|MT14728||C. elegans||mfap-1(n4564 n5214) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP mfap-1 homozygotes. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. mfap-1(n4564 n5214) mutants exhibit temperature-sensitive lethality: at 15°C, (n4564 n5214) homozygous animals grow and behave similarly to wild-type; at 20°C mutant animals grow more slowly, have few progeny and are hyperactive; at 25°C the mutant strain is embryonically lethal. qIs48 is an insertion of ccEx9747 (carries myo-2::GFP, pes-10::GFP, and a gut enhancer fused to GFP) onto the hT2 chromosome and is homozygous lethal.
