|GN517||C. elegans||pgEx116. Show Description
pgEx116 [unc-70::TSmod + myo3p::mCherry]. Pick animals with red fluorescence in body wall muscle to maintain array. The tension sensor module (TSMod) was inserted into the coding sequence of unc-70. TSmod consists of a donor (mTFP) and acceptor (Venus) fluorophore separated by a flexible linker made of 40 residues from the spider-silk flagelliform, which acts as an entropic nanospring suitable for estimating biologically relevant forces.
