|DAG355||C. elegans||lite?1(ce314) X; domIs355. Show Description
domIs355 [mec?3p::QF + mec?4p::QS + QUAS::CoChR::GFP + unc122p::RFP]. High sensitivity blue-light optogenetic line for FLP neurons. Transgenic animals expressing the high-sensitivity blue light-activated channelrhodopsin CoChR into FLP using the Q-system combining mec-3p and mec-4p promoters. In animals grown on all trans-retinal-containing medium, low intensity blue light stimuli trigger reversal responses. Animals have red coelomocytes. The transgene was integrated with UV, and outcrossed 2x to parental ce314 mutant strain KG1180. Reference: Schild LC & Glauser DA. Genetics. 2015 Aug;200(4):1029-34. doi: 10.1534/genetics.115.177956.
