MSB486 C. elegans mirSi16 II; eat-4(mir12[loxP 5'UTR] mir17[loxP intron2]) III; mirEx131. Show Description
mirSi16 [flp-18p::lox2272::BFP::tbb-2 3'UTR::lox2272::ChR2-HRDC::SL2::jRGECO1a::unc-54 3'UTR + Cbr-unc-119(+)] II. mirEx131 [sra-6p::TeNL + npr-9p::ChR2-HRDC::YFP::jRGECO1a + unc-119(+) + gpa:14p::CRE]. Maintain by picking worms with YFP expression in AIB neurons. Blue fluorescence in flp-18 expressing neurons. loxP sites inserrted before first (eat-4(mir12[loxP 5'UTR])) and after second (eat-4(mir17[loxP intron2])) exon of eat-4 gene. Lite. mirEx131 contains calcium sensitive (Kd 250 nM) teal nanolantern (TeNL) in ASH and PVQ, ChR2-HRDC::YFP and jRGECO1a expression in AIB and gpa-14p:CRE. CRE under gpa-14 promoter generates a conditional eat-4 KO in ASH (NOT defective) after recombination of loxP sites in that locus and switches BFP expression in AVA to ChR2-HRDC and jRGECO1a after recombination of lox2272 sites.
