This double mutant exhibits a doubling of both mean and maximum lifespans at 25C compared to N2. It exhibits a longer lifespan at 25C than it does at 20C. It has somewhat reduced fertility. It has normal development time, appearance, movements and feeding behavior. It's swimming rate in liquid is slightly higher than N2. STS mapping indicates the most likely location for age-2 is on LG I.
IC699 C. elegans sax-3(ky123) ; quEx168. Show Description
quEx168 [sax-3::GFP + odr-1::RFP]. Pick RFP+ to maintain. GFP is visible at higher magnification but fades quickly. Strongest GFP is in the head region. The Chin-Sang Lab recommends researchers use this strain instead of IC450, as sax-3::GFP expression in IC699 is more consistent than in the comparable strain IC450.
IW465 C. elegans tax-2(iw80) I. Show Description
Improvement in thermotolerance at 37C, though weaker than in null mutants. Longer lifespan than to tax-2(gk117937) null mutant. Higher frequency of dauer formation and survival at 28C than tax-2(gk117937) null mutant. Reference: Hwang HY, et al. Front Genet. 2020 Oct 6;11:566948. doi: 10.3389/fgene.2020.566948. PMID: 33133151

JRB1 Halicephalobus mephisto Halicephalobus mephisto wild isolate. Show Description
Halicephalobus mephisto wild isolate. Has approximately 1.15% snp heterozygosity. Parthenogenetic reproduction so it cannot be out-crossed. Can survive higher temperatures than C. elegans. Useful model organism for studying heat tolerance; has expanded Hsp70 and AIG1 gene families. References: Borgonie G, et al. Nature. 2011 Jun 2;474(7349):79-82. Weinstein DJ, et al. Nat Commun. 2019 Nov 21;10(1):5268.
JT191 C. elegans daf-28(sa191) V. Show Description
Temperature sensitive dauer constitutive. Highly penetrant at 25C, much less so at 20C and 15C. The dauers recover almost immediately after temperature down shift, so one may work with synchronous broods. Semi-dominant: about 10% of heterozygotes form dauers.
KAE10 C. elegans seaSi40 I; unc-119(ed3) III. Show Description
seaSi40 [(pCFJ448) (eft-3p::fmo-2 + H2B::GFP) + Cbr-unc-119(+)] I. Higher level of FMO-2 over-expression compared to KAE9. Improved healthspan, stress resistance and longevity. Reference: Leiser SF, et al. Science 350.6266 (2015): 1375-8.
KG1180 C. elegans lite-1(ce314) X. Show Description
Defective response to short wavelength light; response strongly reduced but not eliminated. All other characteristics seem wild type, including reponse to mechanosensory stimuli. Strong, probably null, allele. This mutation also blocks the coordinated light response of unc-31(e928) and egl-30(ad805). To identify lite-1 homozygous mutants when crossing into different backgrounds, use a fluorescence stereomicroscope with a GFP filter and zoom to the hightest magnification (60-100X) to distinguish Lite from non-Lite animals. This works best when the animals are mired in thicker parts of the food to slow their spontaneous locomotion but not their response to light. Scan animals around the edge of the food where it is thickest. Leave the lid of the plate off for a minute or so before starting to let the animals adjust to air currents.
KR1233 C. elegans hDf8/dpy-5(e61) unc-13(e450) I. Show Description
Slow-growing wild-type, Him. Segregates WT, DpyUnc, WT males and dead eggs (hDf8 homozygotes). Heterozygotes also exhibit low-penetrance vulval blips; these may be more pronounced, present at higher frequency and accompanied at times by tail blips upon recovery from starvation. hDf8 dominantly suppresses recombination from around unc-13 at least to dpy-5, and possibly to the left end of chromosome I. Maintain by picking WT and checking for correct segregation of progeny. This strain was generated by the Genetic Toolkit project, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use: The Genetic Toolkit is funded by the NIH National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) (USA) to Ann M. Rose, David L. Baillie, and Donald L. Riddle. Report all experimental results to Ann Rose.
LB21 C. elegans nuo-1(ua1)/mIn1 [dpy-10(e128) mIs14] II. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT (fluorescent), Dpys (highly fluorescent) and L3 lethals (non-fluorescent). GFP semi-dominantly expressed in 4-60 cell embyros, pharyngeal muscle and gut. Pharyngeal and gut GFP is easily seen in a UV dissecting microscope; early embryonic signal requires higher magnification. mIs14 occasionally crosses off mIn1[dpy-10], apparently by double recombination. mIs14 is ccEx9747 integrated into mIn1[dpy-10]. This is a three-construct element containing myo-2 and pes-10 promoters and a gut enhancer fused individually to GFP coding sequence. Called LB21B.
MH5015 C. elegans kuIs118 II; unc-119(ed3) III. Show Description
kuIs118 [daf-15p::daf-15::mCherry + Cbr-unc-119(+)] II. kuIs118 is a single copy insertion into ttTi5605 via CRISPR/Cas9. Superficially wild-type. mCherry expression observed throughout the body. mCherry detected throughout development by western blot with anti-mCherry antibody, with highest expression levels in early larval stages.

MQ470 C. elegans rop-1(pk93) V. Show Description
No visible phenotype. Severely decreased levels of the RoRNP-associated CeY RNA. Higher frequency of mutant 5S rRNA molecules into rop-1 ribosomes. See also WBPaper00003694.
MT8190 C. elegans lin-15Bb&lin-15A(n765) nIs51 X. Show Description
nIs51 [egl-10(+) + lin-15(+)] X. Egl-C, Bor, hyperforaging, hyperactive locomotion, and male longevity and mating reduced. By Western blotting and staining the EGL-10 protein is highly overexpressed relative to N2. nIs51 was generated by injecting the lin-15 rescuing plasmid pEK1 at 50 ug/ml and the egl-10 rescuing fragment pMK21 at 80 ug/ml into MT1642 lin-15(n765) worms. The resulting strain was gamma irradiated and an integrant isolated, and was backcrossed to N2 four times. nIs51 was mapped to the right arm of X.
NA22 Escherichia coli E. coli. Show Description
Bacteria. Jim Lewis received this E. coli strain from Henry Epstein in 1977. It is a prototroph and the worms grow well on it in liquid, even when the bacteria are highly labeled with 35-S. It hasn't been tested to see if it is temperature sensitive. It should be distributed as "Jim Lewis' NA22" until it has been confirmed that this is a certified version of NA22. Biosafety Level: BSL-1.
OC271 C. elegans pph-4.1(tm1598) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Show Description
Homozygous sterile mutation balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP tm1598 homozygotes (produce ~100% dead eggs, slightly higher penetrance at 25C). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Reference: Peters N, et al., J Cell Sci. 2010 Mar 1;123(Pt 5):795-805.
OH12738 C. elegans otIs545; otIs593. Show Description
otIs545 [gcy-5p::RFP + LacO repeats]. otIs593 [let-858p::GFP::LacI + ttx-3p::mCherry]. Maintain at 20C; otIs545 is very unstable at lower temperatures. RFP expression in ASER neuron. LACI::GFP aggregates on LacO repeats to form two dots in every nucleus. otIs545 is unstable, presumably due to the highly repetitive nature of the LacO array. Stock should be periodically examined for RFP expression and GFP localization to retain expression of the array. Reference: Patel T & Hobert O. eLife 2017.
OH172 C. elegans lin-15B&lin-15A(n765) X; otEx105. Show Description
otEx105 [lim-7::GFP + lin-15(+)]. Highly penetrant line, but non-Muv/Muv does not correlate well with presence/absence of extrachromosomal array. Maintain by picking GFP-positive animals under GFP-dissecting scope. GFP strongly expressed in gonad sheath cell pair 1.

TY5684 C. elegans sdc-2(y93) X. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Complements other sdc-2 alleles at 15C. At 20C animals are not Dpy or Tra, but there is a low penetrance of lethality, some Egl animals, and some animals will Bag after a couple days of egg-laying. y93 fails to complement other sdc-2 alleles at 25C; homozygotes are Egl,Tra and weakly Dpy at higher temperatures. Shifting embryos (prepared from non-Dpy non-Egl non-Tra gravid adults at 20C) from 20C to 25C is sufficient to alter their phenotype. Reference: Nusbaum C & Meyer BJ.
