QQ202 C. elegans daf-2(cv20[daf-2::gfp]) III. Show Description
Superficially wild-type. Reference: Simske J & Dong Y. (2017). International Worm Meeting. The role of DAF-2 In the transmission of maternal and paternal nutritional status during embryogenesis. WBPaper00051789.
CV203 C. elegans rjSi1 II. Show Description
rjSi1 [cra-1p::cra-1::GFP::cra-1 3'UTR + Cbr-unc-119(+)] II. Single copy insertion. cra-1 promoter, cra-1::GFP and 3'UTR was cloned into pCFJ150 (ttTi5605) vector and inserted into ttTi5605 of EG4322 strain. Outcrossed three times to N2 Bristol; could still carry unc-119(ed9) in the background. Superficially wild-type. This CRA-1::GFP fusion construct has been shown to be functional and its localization reflects endogenous CRA-1 localization. rjSi1 transgene can rescue synapsis defects of cra-1 mutants and restore cross-over events (six bivalents instead of the 11 to 12 univalents characteristic of cra-1 mutants). Brood size and embryonic lethality were significantly, albeit not completely, restored in the rescued line suggesting that the GFP tag might affect other CRA-1 functions. Reference: Gao J, et al.
