II; bcIs39 V. Show Description
bcIs39 [lim-7p::ced-1::GFP and lin-15(+)] V. Temperature-sensitive germ cell apoptosis leading to infertility at 25 C. Apoptosing germ cells are decorated by CED-1::GFP in the gonad. Loss of p170 form of IFG-1 (but not p130 IFG-1) confirmed by Western blot. Escaping eggs are fertilized and embryonic lethal. Mos-1 transposon insertion previously described as ifg-1::mos-1(cxP9279) II; confirmed by triple primer PCR with 5-ACCAAACTGGGCAAACAAAG-3, 5-GCTCAATTCGCGCCAAACTATG-3, and 5-CTTCCTGAAATTTGGTTTAACAGT-3. Homozygous ifg-1::mos yields only 444 bp product. Outcrossed heterozygotes yield both 353 bp (wild type ifg-1) and 444 bp products.
