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].

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.
COP1626 C. elegans ins-34(knu572) IV. Show Description
F52B11.6. Superficially wild-type. knu572 is an F125L point mutation mimicking human mutation F119L in patients with PMM2 deficiency disease. Strain is sensitive to bortezomib (proteasome blocker) and displays larval arrest in liquid culture. This strain may not be distributed to commercial or for-profit entities. Please contact ethan@perlara.com for more information.
CP38 C. briggsae Cbr-tra-1(nm2)/Cbr-let(nm28) III. Show Description
When singled, hermaphrodites should throw 2/3 hermaphrodites and 1/2 nm2 XX males. The lethal appears to balance the nm2 allele pretty well, but precise recombination mapping has not been performed. The XX males maintain their phenotypic resemblance to the unbalanced strain and are probably not fertile due to obvious gonadal deficiencies. This strain has been successfully grown at 15C and 20C. Both strains appear to have complete penetrance of the mutant phenotypes.
