ABR7 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; staIs2. Show Description
staIs2 [pie-1p::rbr-2::GFP + unc-119(+)]. Extended longevity. Maintain under normal conditions. Reference: This strain was used as LC Ppie-1::rbr-2::GFP (#3) in Greer EL et al Nature 2010 doi: 10.1038/nature09195.
AML470 C. elegans juSi164 unc-119(ed3) III; wtfIs458. Show Description
juSi164 [mex-5p::HIS-72::miniSOG + Cbr-unc-119(+)] III. wtfIs458 [mec-4::Chrimson4.2::SL2::mCherry::unc-54 3' UTR + unc-122::GFP]. Maintain in the covered box to avoid unnecessary exposure to ambient light. Upon blue light treatment (460 nm LED light for 30 min at 4 Hz with 2 mW/mm2), Histone-miniSOG in the germline can induce heritable mutations. Transgenic animals express light-gated ion channel Chrimson and a fluorescent protein mCherry in mechanosensory neurons alongside GFP in coelomocytes.
BC2179 C. elegans dpy-18(e364)/eT1 III; mDf3/eT1 V. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, dead eggs and Unc-36. Maintain by picking WT. 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 David Baillie. [2/99: Strain may have broken down: doesn't segregate real WT, and those animals that are not Unc-36 still are somewhat Unc; and unc-23 is no longer under mDf3 in this strain. Mike Nonet]
BC2383 C. elegans dpy-18(e364)/eT1 III; unc-46(e177) let-469(s1582)/eT1 V. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Unc-36, DpyUncLet and dead eggs. Lethal as sterile adult. Maintain by picking WT. [7/94: No longer throwing eT1 Unc-36's. May have picked up a lethal mutation on one of the eT1 chromosomes. Also, appears to be lethal in mid-late larval stage rather than as adult.]

CEW1 Oscheius tipulae Oscheius tipulae. Show Description
Isolated in 1991 by Carlos E. Winter in soil samples taken at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Hermaphrodite strain. Adults are 1.5mm. The life cycle is a little longer than C. elegans at 22C. Each lays about 300 eggs in the three days following the moult from L4 to adult. Eggs are laid just after being fertilized resulting sometimes in plates with many eggs (much more than C. elegans). See Comp. Biochem. Physiol 103B: 189, 1992. See Nematology 2(1): 89-98, 2000. Can be grown and maintained on NGM. L1s easily frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen. This strain is deposited in Paul Sternberg's collection under the name PS1022. The species has not yet been determined; Lynn Carta will publish a paper proposing Oscheius brevesophaga. DO NOT use this name before the paper is published. Contact Carles E. Winter or Lynn Carta before publishing anything official about this strain. See also WBPaper00004471 and WBPaper00004485.

DA810 C. elegans egl-30(ad810) gpb-2(ad541)/gpb-2(ad541) I. Show Description
ad810 is homozygous lethal. ad810/+ is Egl and it suppresses gpb-2. gpb-2 phenotype is rather subtle: they are slightly starved, slightly longer than normal, and tend to be loopy in their movements (they make abnormally deep bends). Hets should be Egl and non-Eat. On most E. coli strains gpb-2 grows rather poorly, especially if the plates are older so that there is a thick and tough lawn. On such plates there will be a lot of gpb-2 larval arrest, and those that don't arrest will grow slowly. The hets should easily outgrow the gpb-2 homozygotes. [gpb-2 is also hypersensitive to the drug arecoline: they won't grow on 5 mM. The hets will grow even better than WT on 5 mM arecoline.] gpb-2(ad541) previously called eat-11(ad541).
DF5017 Mesorhabditis longespiculosa Show Description
WT strain. Mesorhabditis longespiculosa. Isolated by W. Sudhaus on August 16, 1973 from tunnels of beetle larvae (Mallodon downesi?, Cerambycidae) in Euphorbiaceae at lake Nakuru, Kenya. See WBG 12(5) 14. Male/Female strain.
DR2055 C. elegans mIn1(+) II. Show Description
Dark-bodied, unmarked variant of mIn19mC6) with small broods. Presumably balances let-552 to rol-1 (hermaphrodite stock obtained from outcrossing these males to dpy-10 unc-4 was shown to balance this interval). Isolated from DR1982 as a stock that no longer segregated Dpy-10 animals. Not clear whether this strain is the result of chromosome rearrangement in DR1982, or if DR1982 stock was a mixture of mIn1(+)/mIn[dpy-10] and mIn1(+) homozygotes.
DR2168 C. elegans liv-2(m882) rrf-3(b26) II. Show Description
Approximately 30% dauer at 27C. Probably thermotolerant because it comes from a thermotolerant selection, but it was not retested. Increaesed longevity. Maintain at 15C.

Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Reference: Petty EL, et al. PLoS Genet. 2009 Oct;5(10):e1000699. doi: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1000699. Csankovszki G, et al. (2009) Curr Biol 19(1):9-19. [NOTE: new stock received at CGC 05/26/2021. Original stock received in 2010 had broken down and was no longer segregating as expected.]
ET507 C. elegans daf-16(mu86) I; cki-2(ok2105) II; glp-1(ar202) III. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Animals form germline tumors that prevent fertility at restrictive temerature (25C).

LV18 C. elegans unc-45(wc1) dpy-1(e1)/daf-7(e1372) par-2(it46) III. Show Description
Maintain at 25C. At 25C, heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Dauers (dauer escapers will be Par and give only dead eggs), and DpyUcs which arrest as dead eggs (range from twitching multicellulars to 3-folds that hatch). [There is a greater percentage of hatchlings when the mother is heterozygous (wc1 dpy-1/+). There may also be the possibility of near complete maternal rescue (near full-sized, sterile Dpys), but this has not been routinely observed in the balanced strain (as opposed to wc1 dpy-1/+).] Maintain by picking WT at 25C and scoring for correct segregation of progeny. [3/97: The dauers are not giving dead eggs-they are giving other dauers. Appears that the Par mutation is no longer present.]
