|EU931||C. elegans||zyg-8(or490) III; lin-2(e1309) X. Show Description
Maintain at 15C. Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal at restrictive temperature of 26C. Viable embryos at permissive temperature of 15C. Mitotic spindle in one-cell stage embryo assembles normally, but microtubules destabilize at anaphase and spindle becomes mis-positioned toward the posterior pole leading to highly abnormal cleavage and chromosome segregation defects.
