DAG261 C. elegans lite?1(ce314) X; domEx261. Show Description
domEx261[mec?4p::CoChR::GFP + unc?122p::RFP]. Pick animals with red fluorescence in coelomocytes to maintain. High sensitivity blue-light optogenetic line for gentle touch receptor neurons (TRN). Transgenic animals expressing the high-sensitivity blue light-activated channelrhodopsin CoChR into TRNs using the mec-4 promoter. In animals grown on all trans-retinal-containing medium, low intensity blue light stimuli trigger behaviors similar to those evoked by gentle touch. Reference: Schild LC & Glauser DA.
