|OH17942||C. elegans||tts-1(ot1234[tts-1p::SL1::tbb-2 5'UTR::GFP::H2B::loxP::sqt-1(d)::hygR::loxP::3xFLAG::tbb-2 3'UTR]) X. Show Description
The Null Transcriptional Reporter (NuTR) cassette was used to remove the tts-1 locus resulting in a null allele and transcriptional reporter driving expression of GFP. The cassette contains the dominant sqt-1(e1350) allele that results in roller animals. Expression of Cre (via crossing into a strain expressing a germline Cre or by injection of a Cre transgene) will result in removal of the selectable markers and result in non-roller animals. Pick Rollers to retain full transgene cassette. GFP expression is seen in several tissues including the pharynx but is significantly upregulated in a stress-dependent manner in a variety of tissues.
