AV38 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I); meDf2 X. Show Description
Produces 31% XO male self progeny; nondisjunction is correlated with a high frequency of achiasmate X chromosomes in oocyte nuclei, and a reduced frequency of X chromosome crossovers. meDf2 disrupts the function of the cis-acting X chromosome meiotic pairing center. meDf2/+ heterozygotes produce 4-6% XO progeny, so the presence of meDf2 can be followed in heterozygotes by this weak Him phenotype.
AV39 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I); meDf3 X. Show Description
Produces 32% XO male self progeny; nondisjunction is correlated with a high frequency of achiasmate X chromosomes in oocyte nuclei, and a reduced frequency of X chromosome crossovers. meDf3 disrupts the function of the cis-acting X chromosome meiotic pairing center. meDf3/+ heterozygotes produce 4-6% XO progeny, so the presence of meDf3 can be followed in heterozygotes by this weak Him phenotype.
AV40 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I); meDf4 X. Show Description
Produces 27% XO male self progeny; nondisjunction is correlated with a high frequency of achiasmate X chromosomes in oocyte nuclei, and a reduced frequency of X chromosome crossovers. meDf4 disrupts the function of the cis-acting X chromosome meiotic pairing center. meDf4/+ heterozygotes produce 4-6% XO progeny, so the presence of meDf4 can be followed in heterozygotes by this weak Him phenotype.
AV41 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I); meDf5 X. Show Description
Produces 32% XO male self-progeny; nondisjunction is correlated with a high frequency of achiasmate X chromosomes in oocyte nuclei, and a reduced frequency of X chromosome crossovers. meDf5 disrupts the function of the cis-acting X chromosome meiotic pairing center. meDf5/+ heterozygotes produce 4-6% XO progeny, so the presence of meDf5 can be followed in heterozygotes by this weak Him phenotype.
SP1027 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I); unc-1(e538) X. Show Description
WT strain.
TY2139 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I)/yDp14 (X;I); him-8(e1489) IV; yDf13 unc-1(e1598n1201) dpy-3(e27) X. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT hermphrodites whose progeny include WT hermaphrodites, Dpy hermaphrodites (mnDp66; yDf13 unc-1 dpy-3), WT males and Dpy males.
TY2173 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I)/yDp14 (X;I); him-8(e1489) IV; yDf17 X. Show Description
The hermaphrodites are variable in phenotype, but most are Dpyish (small) and sick. Pick these hermaphrodites to maintain the strain, since healthier animals may have picked up a suppressor mutation or gone polyploid, etc. Strain gives WT males.
TY2175 C. elegans mnDp66 (X;I)/yDp14 (X;I); him-8(e1489) IV; yDf17/unc-1(e1598n1201) dpy-3(e27) X. Show Description
WT hermaphrodites whose progeny include WT hermaphrodites, Dpy hermaphrodites (mnDp66; unc-1 dpy-3), Unc hermaphrodites (yDp14; unc-1 dpy-3), DpyTra hermaphrodites (mnDp66/yDp14; yDf17), WT males, Unc males, and Dpy males. There are 2 types of WT hermaphrodites in this strain which are indistinguishable unless you score their offspring: mnDp66/yDp14; him-8; yDf17/unc-1 dpy-3 animals will have many WT males progeny; but mnDp66/yDp14; him-8; unc-1 dpy-3 animals will have primarily dpy male progeny [mnDp66/yDp14; unc-1 dpy-3 XO animals are mostly dead, but there are some escapers of lethality]. Maintain by picking L4 WT hermaphrodites and checking for correct segregation of progeny.
