ZT69 C. elegans csr-1(fj162) ?; fjDf1 fjDf2 fjDf3 fjDf4 X. Show Description
fj162 at the second K-rich region is an in-frame duplication (comprising of a small duplication and a tiny inverted duplication) generating 61 extra amino acids. The CeRep55_X quadruple-deletion mutant does not exhibit a clear Him phenotype, but the Him phenotype of the csr-1(fj162) mutant is enhanced by the CeRep55_X quadruple deletions. The fj162 mutation can be checked by PCR with the following primers: TCGGATGTTGACTACAACGC and GAAGGTAGAAACTTCATTCCAGCAC. This strain lacks four major clusters of CeRep55 repeats on the X chromosome. The condensation of unpaired X chromosomes in male testes is insufficient. CeRep55 is a class of minisatellite sequences consisting of a 27-nt tandem repeat that is present on all chromosomes. Some CeRep55 clusters express long non-coding RNAs and small RNAs. Each of the four deletion sites was designed to acquire a sequence tag (TGTACAGGAAACAGCTATGACC; similar to M13 reverse) instead of the CeRep55 tandem repeats. The deletions of CeRep55 clusters can be checked by PCR with the following primers: fjDf1 in Y73B3A, CAACCTGACTCTCGCCAAGAC and GGAGAAGTAGGCGTGTCAGTTA; fjDf2 in Y75D11A, CAAGTGCCAAACTAGACTGCTC and TTCAAAACGCTACGCGATACCAG; fjDf3 in Y81B9A, AAATGCCCCTATCTCACAGTGG and GACTGCTAGAATCTGACTCGTC; fjDf4 in Y49A10A, CAACCTGACTCTCGCCAAGAC and GGAGAAGTAGGCGTGTCAGTTA. The PCR check can also be performed with the M13 reverse primer and the right-side primer. Reference: Tabara H, et al.

ZT72 C. elegans dpy-5(e61) I; fjDf1 fjDf2 fjDf3 fjDf4 X. Show Description
This strain carries a dpy-5 mutation to facilitate genome modification in CeRep55 quadruple deletion background: fjDf1 (also known as fj115); fjDf2 (aka fj85); fjDf3 (aka fj123); fjDf4 (aka fj120) X. This strain lacks four major clusters of CeRep55 repeats on the X chromosome. The condensation of unpaired X chromosomes in male testes is insufficient. CeRep55 is a class of minisatellite sequences consisting of a 27-nt tandem repeat that is present on all chromosomes. Some CeRep55 clusters express long non-coding RNAs and small RNAs.

ZT73 C. elegans coh-4(tm1857) coh-3(gk112)/tmC16 [unc-60(tmIs1210)] coh-3(gk112) V. Show Description
Pick wild-type Venus+ animals to maintain. coh-4(tm1857) coh-3(gk112) homozygotes exhibit defects in synaptonemal complex formation on meiotic chromosomes. Many of the progeny from coh-4 coh-3 homozygotes exhibit embryonic lethality, likely due to aneuploidy, but only a few progeny hatch and exhibit the Him phenotype. The coh-3 and coh-4 genes encode nearly identical meiosis-specific kleisins. The deletion mutations can be checked by PCR with the following primers: coh-4(tm1857): TACGCGGCACACATGGGTCT and CAATTCCCCCTAGACATACGATTC; coh-3(gk112): CTCGCAGCGATCGAGCAAGC and AACTGAACATGAGAGCCACGAAG. tmC16 homozygotes are Unc Venus(+). [NOTE: ZT73 with the inversion-based balancer is more amenable to producing coh-4 coh-3 homozygous mutant males than TY5120 with a translocation-based balancer.] Reference: Tabara H, et al.
