Might still carry unc-119(ed9) III, which is rescued by bqSi196. Reference: González-Aguilera C, et al. Genome Biol. 2014 Feb 3;15(2):R21.
BN218 C. elegans bqSi218 II. Show Description
bqSi218 [hsp-16.41p::Dam::Myc::emr-1 + unc-119(+)] II. Strain for DamID mapping of chromatin associated with the nuclear lamina/LMN-1. Made by MosSCI using strain EG4322 for injection.

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. PLOS Genetics 11(3): e1005029. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pgen.1005029
DG4329 C. elegans fasn-1(tn1762) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III) Show Description
Homozygous lethal deletion balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are wild-type with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate wild-type GFP heterozygotes, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP tn1762 homozygotes (dead embryos and L1 larvae). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick wild-type GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. tn1762 is a ~9.2 kb deletion within fasn-1, including Exon 2 thru to 57 nt preceding stop codon.

DG4384 C. elegans hmgr-1(tm4386) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I; III). Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT, GFP+ in the pharynx and segregate WT (GFP+ in the pharynx), dead eggs (homozygotes for hT2) and hmgr-1(tm4386) homozygotes, which die as young larvae (L1/L2). Maintain by picking GFP+ worms and checking for correct segregation, since the hT2 balancer is lost at low frequencies. hmgr-1(tm4386) can be maintained as homozygous fertile hermaphrodites on 20 mM mevalonolactone. Reference: P. Ranji, M. Rauthan, C. Pitot and M. Pilon, 2014. PloS ONE 9(6): e100033.
DG4392 C. elegans cyb-3(tn1755[gfp::3xflag::cyb-3]) V. Show Description
Although this strain is maintainable as a homozygote it produces many dead embryos (~80%) and has a low viable brood size (~24 ± 18). Thus, the GFP tag compromises CYB-3 function.
EG4322 C. elegans ttTi5605 II; unc-119(ed9) III. Show Description
Unc. Not caused by ttTi5605. Mos1 allele generated by NemaGENETAG consortium (Laurent Segalat). [NOTE: 11/15/11 - This strain contains unc-119(ed9), not unc-119(ed3) as previously reported. (C. Frokjaer-Jensen)] [NOTE: The Dernburg lab has noticed an increased number of rad-51 foci in EG4322 compared to N2. Please use the outcrossed version of this strain (EG6699) instead, which does not have this problem. (C. Frokjaer-Jensen)]

EG5767 C. elegans qqIr7 I; oxSi78 II; unc-119(ed3) III. Show Description
qqIr7 [peel-1(qq99)] I. oxSi78 [peel-1p::peel-1 (introns included)::GFP::peel-1 3'UTR + Cbr-unc-119(+)] II. Genetic background is a mixture of N2 and wild isolate EG4348. The oxSi78 insertion produces a PEEL-1::GFP translational fusion. PEEL-1::GFP is expressed in the spermatogenic germline and packaged into sperm. PEEL-1::GFP appears to localize to fibrous body-membranous organelles. PEEL-1::GFP does not rescue peel-1(qq99). Reference: Seidel HS, et al. PLoS Biol. 2011 Jul;9(7):e1001115.

HCC21 C. elegans hwSi3 II; unc-119(ed9) III. Show Description
hwSi3 [pie-1p::GFP::mex-3::pie-1 3'UTR + unc-119(+)] II. Worms are healthiest at 15C. Shift to 25C overnight to increase brightness of GFP. Mos1-mediated single-copy insertion (MosSCI) into EG4322. GFP-tagged transgene expressing full-length MEX-3 uniformly throughout oocytes and early embryos through the 4-cell stage. GFP::MEX-3 then mirrors endogenous MEX-3, disappearing from somatic cells by about the 12-cell stage. Also detected in P granules. GFP::MEX-3 can replace endogenous MEX-3.

HCC27 C. elegans hwSi8 II; unc-119(ed9) III. Show Description
hwSi8 [pie-1p::GFP::mex-3(601-1248)::pie-1 3'UTR + unc-119(+)] II. Worms are healthiest at 15C. Shift to 25C overnight to increase brightness of GFP. Mos1-mediated single-copy insertion (MosSCI) into EG4322. GFP-tagged transgene expressing a portion of MEX-3(601-1248) required for protein degradation. At about the 12-cell stage, soma-germline asymmetry is briefly visible before GFP::MEX-3(601-1248) becomes undetectable even in the germline blastomeres. Detected weakly on P granules only in the presence of endogenous MEX. Reference: Huang NN & Hunter CP. Gene. 2015 Jan 10;554(2):160-73.

Mos1-mediated single-copy insertion (MosSCI) into EG4322. GFP-tagged transgene expressing truncated MEX-3 that is missing a portion required for protein degradation. GFP::MEX-3(2-636) is extraordinarily stable, persisting in somatic cells through the comma stage (~550 cells) at levels similar to those in 1- and 2-cell embryos. Also detected on P granules through hatching. Reference: Huang NN & Hunter CP. Gene. 2015 Jan 10;554(2):160-73.
KG4386 C. elegans unc-104(ce782) II. Show Description
Temperature sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Animals grown at 14C take 23% longer than wild-type to reach adulthood, exhibit 0% larval arrest, locomotion rates that are ~40% of wild type, and synaptic vesicle densities at synapses that are ~60% of wild type. Animals grown at 20C take 80% longer than wild type to reach adulthood, exhibit locomotion rates that are ~3% of wild type, and synaptic vesicle densities at synapses that are ~2% of wild type. Animals grown at 25C exhibit >90% larval arrest. When shifting late larval stage and adult animals from 14C to 25C, it takes 8-12 hours to see effects on locomotion and SV density.
