Strain Species Genotype
SSM264 C. elegans rad-51(iow53[GFP::rad-51])/nT1[qIs51] (IV;V). Show Description
Heterozygotes are wild-type with pharyngeal-expressed GFP, and segregate wild-type GFP+(pharynx) heterozygotes, arrested nT1[qIs51] homozygotes, and viable non-GFP(pharynx) rad-51(iow53[GFP::rad-51]) homozygotes. Balancer is prone to breaking down. If a population contains a mix of bright and dim GFP animals, pick dim GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. iow53 inserted a GFP tag at the N-terminus of the endogenous rad-51 locus, but the tagged protein is not fully functional. non-GFP(pharynx) rad-51(iow53[GFP::rad-51]) homozygotes form GFP foci in the germline that are mostly spo-11 dependent, and GFP::rad-51 homozygotes have defects in unloading RAD-51. Created by CRISPR using pDD282, therefore may also contain 3XFLAG. Reference: Koury E, et al. Nucleic Acids Res. 2018 Jan 25;46(2):748-764.
