AA278 C. elegans dhIs59. Show Description
dhIs59 [Topo::daf-9::GFP + lin-15(+)]. Perinuclear expression in a ventral pair of bilateral neurons identified as the IL1Vs or URAVs in the anterior ganglia. By mid-L2, expression in the cytoplasm of the hypodermis, the syncitial epidermis, but absent from midline, epidermal seam cells. Levels peak around the L2 molt and diminish during L4. In some cases, transient expression seen in the L3 vulval blast cells. Also expressed within the hermaphrodite spermatheca starting in late L4 larvae and continuing eve in old adults. In males, expression in IL1V/URAVs and hypodermis but not somatic gonad. In dauer larvae, strong expression in IL1V/URAV and specifically extends into axonal but not dendritic processes. In post-dauer stages, expression in a pattern similar to reproductively growing animals, except expression is absent in the hypodermis. Grow at 20C. May still contain lin-15(n765) mutation in the background.
AA426 C. elegans dre-1(dh99) V. Show Description
Precocious fusion of seam cells one stage earlier (prior to L3 molt); impenetrant gonadal migration defects; SynMig on daf-12 RNAi.
AA699 C. elegans din-1(hd36) II. Show Description
non-Daf. Temperature-sensitive phenotypes: at 20C half of the animals are egg-laying defective with occasional mispositioned gonadal arms; at 25C, 18% arrest as embryos: those animals that hatch usually display variable morphology defects in body and pharynx; nearly all animals that live to adults are small, clear, slightly uncoordinated, constipated, and virtually sterile. Maintain at 20C or below.
AA790 C. elegans lin-15B&lin-15A(n765) X; dhEx343. Show Description
dhEx343 [din-1p::din-1E::GFP + lin-15(+)]. din-1s::GFP is detected in hypodermis, seam, intestine, and somatic gonad including the distal tip cells. din-1s is also expressed in neurons, vulval precursors, body wall muscle, pharynx, and all tissues with heterochronic phenotypes or remodeled during dauer. Expression is first detected in a few nuclei by the comma stage of embryogenesis. By hatching, din-1s was widely expressed, albeit weakly. Overall expression in most tissues is detected at various levels into adult and in dauer larvae. Animals with the array are GFP+ and non-Muv. Animals which have lost the array are Muv and non-GFP. din-1p::din-1E::GFP was produced by cloning into Fire Lab vector L3781.

Can be maintained by crossing with male siblings. Feminized C. briggsae strain made susceptible to RNAi knock-down by feeding dsRNA due to the transgenic expression of C. elegans SID-2.

AFS205 C. elegans zen-4(cle5) IV. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle5), GAC to AAC (D520N), and one silent mutation, GCA to GCT at codon 519, that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. A previous deposited version of this strain, zen-4(ok153), possessed two mis-sense mutations: GAC to AAC (D520N) and GAT to AAT (D735N). Reference: Farboud B, et al.

AFS222 C. elegans zen-4(cle10) IV. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle10), GAC to AAC (D520N), and two silent mutations. One silent mutation is a CGA to CGG mutation at codon 523 that creates a recognition site for a Cas9 guide RNA, in order to use zen-4(cle10ts) as a CRISPR/Cas9 co-conversion marker. The other silent mutation is a GCA to GCT mutation at codon 519 that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. Reference: Farboud B, et al.

AGK233 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx58. Show Description
armEx58 [WRM0611aH08-Del8mer + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses a derivative WRM0611aH08 fosmid. The WRM0611aH08 fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. This derivative fosmid construct lacks the upstream 8-mer motif (CTGTTTCA) next to 21U-3372. The expression of this individual 21U-RNA is lost in transgenic animals. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment.

JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. Expression of this fosmid construct in JU258 worms restores the expression of the missing 21U-RNAs in the germline, as measured by RT-qPCR. Reference: Cecere G, et al.
