|HR75||C. elegans||mei-1(b284) unc-29(e1072)/mei-1(ct46) unc-13(e1091) I. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT. ct46 is a dominant, temperature sensitive maternal effect lethal. ct46 homozygotes are viable and fertile at 15C. b284 is a non-conditional, recessive maternal effect lethal. Heterozygotes give more viable progeny at 15C than 25C.
|MAS94||C. elegans||mei-1(ct46) unc-13(e1091) I; unc-119(ed3) III; abcIs3. Show Description
abcIs3 [pie-1p::ebp-2::GFP + unc-119(+)]. Embryonic-lethal at 25ºC due to dominant gain-of-function mutation mei-1(ct46), and Uncoordinated due to unc-13 mutation. Maternal expression of EBP-2::GFP microtubule end-binding protein. EBP-2 encodes an EB1-like protein (end-binding) that, in early embryos, locates to the growing tips of microtubules. A strong fluorescent signal localizes to the centrosomes of early embryos due to a high concentration of polymerizing microtubules. mei-1(ct46)-based ectopic microtubule severing causes mitotic spindle defects in the early embryo.
