KG4247 C. elegans ceIs201 I. Show Description
ceIs201 [unc-17p::ins-22::Venus + unc-17p::RFP + unc-17p::ssmCherry + myo-2p::RFP]; integration site maps to I:0.77. Expresses INS-22::Venus to mark Dense Core Vesicles in the cholinergic nervous system, including the ventral cord cholinergic motor neurons. Also expresses mCherry in the same neurons to help identify the boundaries of the somas, axons, and dendrites. ssmCherry is mCherry with a secretion signal on its N-terminus, which is constitutively secreted and taken up by coelomoctyes in the pseuodcoelomic space, making it a useful marker for those coelomocytes. The INS-22::Venus also gets secreted by DCVs and taken up by coelomocytes. The myo-2::RFP is a co-tranformation marker that lights up the pharyngeal muscle cells and is useful for crossing the integrant into various mutant backgrounds. Reference: Hoover CM, et al.

KG4687 C. elegans ceIs269 I. Show Description
ceIs269 [unc-129p::tomm-20::Venus + unc-129p::mCherry + ttx-3p::RFP]; Integration in Chromosome I (near genetic position -3.20 or 1.14). The ttx-3 marker is quite faint in this strain especially in larvae. The tomm-20::Venus construct was injected at 0.5 ng/ ul in the strain used to make this integrant, so virtually all of the visible tomm-20::Venus signal s associated with mitochondria with essentially no background. The unc-129p::mCherry marker is expressed at a very low level that are detectable only with a sensitive camera (and often not by eye at 1000X). In strains lacking mitochondria in the dorsal cord, use the camera to focus on the mCherry in the dorsal cord, then acquire in the YFP channel.
KG5082 C. elegans ceIs308. Show Description
ceIs308 [mig-13p::ins-22::Emerald + mig-13p::mCherry + odr-1p::RFP]; Linked to IVC (ceP86; 3.37): 0/17 recombinants. Expresses INS-22::Emerald to mark Dense Core Vesicles in the the DA9 and VA12 cholinergic motor neurons, and also mCherry in the same neurons to help identify the boundaries of the somas, axons, and dendrites. Useful for visualizing Dense Core Vesicles in a single, well-segregated neuron in living animals. When picking homozygotes from crosses with other strains, focus on the brightness of the RFP puncta in the cord. Autofluorescence in the worm body can make it difficult to gauge differences in brightness of the odr-1::RFP marker. Reference: Edwards SL, et al. (manuscript in revision).

KK1254 C. elegans par-2(it315[mCherry::par-2]) III. Show Description
par-2(it315) exhibits a weak maternal effect sterility, suggesting that the tag reduces the protein activity. Note, however, that double homozygous mutants of it315 with pkc-3(it309) or par-6(it310) exhibited partially penetrant and variable maternal effect lethality and maternal effect sterility that was stronger than it315 alone. Thus, although the GFP tags on pkc-3 and par-6 show no effect in an otherwise wild-type background, they do seem to somewhat compromise the activity of the proteins they tag. Made in N2 background.
