ZM8607 C. elegans hpIs481. Show Description
hpIs481 [ceh-12p::tomm20::miniSOG::SL2::BFP + unc-129(DB)p::tomm20::miniSOG::SL2::BFP + lin-15(+)]. Maintain in the covered box to avoid unnecessary exposure to ambient light. Stimulation with blue light (460 nm LED light for 30 min at 4 Hz with 2 mW/mm2), induces mitochondrial-miniSOG ablation of B-class motor neurons. During neuron ablation, it is recommended to keep the lid of the plate open and use a heat disipator to keep the air cool. unc-129(DB)p is a fragment of the unc-129 promoter driving expression in only DB motor neurons (described in Colavita et al., Science 1998 31;281(5377):706-9). The ceh-12 promoter drives expression in VB motor neurons. Generated in N2 background. Reference: Gao S, et al. eLife 2018 Jan 23;7:e29915. doi: 10.7554/eLife.29915.
