TK22 C. elegans mev-1(kn1) III. Show Description
Methylviologen (paraquat) sensitive. Oxygen sensitive. Short life span.
TM185 C. elegans daf-2(e1370) mev-1(kn1) III. Show Description
Daf-c. Maintain at 15C. Sensitive to hyperoxia and paraquot, comparable to mev-1(kn1) alone. High mutation rate. Extended lifespan measured after mid-adult stage is similar to daf-2(e1370) alone. High mortality rate in early adults. Reference: Honda Y, Tanaka M, Honda S. Exp Gerontol. 2008 Jun;43(6):520-9.
VC848 C. elegans mev-1(ok909) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Show Description
T07C4.7. Homozygous sterile deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP ok909 homozygotes (sterile Unc). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Note: qIs48 has been observed to recombine off hT2, typically leaving behind a functional homozygous viable hT2 with Bli-4 phenotype. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
