|SSM491||C. elegans||ubc-9(iow97[3xFLAG::ubc-9]) IV/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) ubc-9(iow97[3xFLAG::ubc-9]) homozygotes. Maintain the strain by picking wild-type GFP+ worms and checking for correct segregation of progeny. iow97 was created by CRISPR/Cas9 insertion of a 3xflag tag at the N-terminus of the endogenous ubc-9 locus; however, the tagged protein is not fully functional. SSM491 is a replacement for SSM291: analysis shows that in all parameters tested, SSM491 is identical to SSM291, which was genetically unstable and prone to breaking down.
