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.

eif-2alpha(rog3) is a (S49A) substitution allele (I:2073439..2073448; WS220) removing P site and PAM site. eif-2alpha (Y37E3.10) encodes the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 (eIF2).

BR5270 C. elegans byIs161. Show Description

BRC546 C. elegans antIs30 II; unc-119(ed9) III. Show Description
antIs30 [attP-f + Cbr-unc-119(+) + glh-2p::phiC31 + rol-6(partial) + myo-2p::GFP + attP-r] II. antIs30 was inserted into ttTi5605 on LG II using MosSCI. GFP expression in pharynx is very weak (as it is single copy) and is easiest to see during the L1-L3 stages. This strain contains a phiC31 docking site and can be used for precise single-copy integration of transgenes via recombination mediated cassette exchange. The docking site contains inverted phiC31-attP sites flanking phiC31 integrase expressed from the glh-2 germline promoter. Integration constructs need to have inverted phiC31-attB sites that flank the intended sequence to be inserted. Reference: Yang FJ, et al. "phiC31 integrase for recombination mediated single copy insertion and genome manipulation in C. elegans." Genetics 2021.
BRC566 C. elegans antIs31 II; unc-119(ed9) III. Show Description
antIs31 [attP-f + Cbr-unc-119(ant40) + glh-2p::phiC31 + rol-6(partial) + myo-2p::GFP + attP-r] II. Unc. antIS31 has been found to self-excise; check for GFP expression periodically to retain the insertion. GFP expression in pharynx is very weak (as it is in single copy) and is easiest to see during the L1-L3 stages. This strain contains a phiC31 docking site and can be used for precise single-copy integration of transgenes via recombination mediated cassette exchange. The docking site contains inverted phiC31-attP sites flanking phiC31 integrase expressed from the glh-2 germline promoter. Integration constructs need to have inverted phiC31-attB sites that flank the intended sequence to be inserted. antIs31 was derived by CRISPR/Cas9 knockout of Cbr-unc-119 in antIs30 creating ant40, a 691 bp deletion in Cbr-unc-119. Because antIs31 does not rescue unc-119(ed3), BRC566 facilitates the use of Unc-119 rescue as a selection marker for transgene insertions. Reference: Yang FJ, et al.

BW1927 C. elegans pal-1(ct224)/qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339)] III; ctIs33. Show Description
ctIs33 [pal-1::GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpySteriles and dead eggs. Pick wild-type heterozygotes to maintain. ct224 homozygotes show Nob phenotype: approximately 80% of homozygous embryos arrest at about the time of hatching with fairly normal anterior development but a severely deformed posterior with a variable knob-like shape; approximately 20% fail to enclose and do not hatch. ct224 is a 4.2kb deletion removing exon 1 through exon 6 of the pal-1 gene. ctIs33 carries a non-rescuing pal-1::GFP fusion containing ~7kb 5' of the SL1 splice site through part of exon 5 fused to GFP. GFP expression is primarily embryonic and limited to a few cells; not visible except at high magnification. Reference: Edgar LG, et al. Dev Biol. 2001 Jan 1;229(1):71-88.
CA998 C. elegans ieDf2 [unc-119+]/mIs11 IV. Show Description
mIs11 [myo-2p::GFP + pes-10p::GFP + F22B7.9::GFP]. Heterozygotes are wild-type with dim GFP signal in the pharynx. mIs11 homozygotes are wild-type with bright GFP in the pharynx. ieDf2 homozygotes (non-GFP) develop normally but produce 97.5% inviable embryos and a high frequency of males among the surviving self-progeny. Pick WT with dim GFP+ in pharynx to maintain. mIs11 homozygotes will quickly overtake the population if not selected against. GFP expression in 4-cell embryos, pharyngeal muscle and gut. ieDf2 is a deficiency of zim-1, zim-2, zim-3, and him-8 generated by MosDel, resulting in single-copy insertion of a copy of the C. briggsae unc-119 gene on Chromosome IV. The deletion spans the sequences from the beginning of the zim-1 coding sequence through the ttTi22866 Mos1 insertion site.
CF1380 C. elegans daf-16(mu86) I; daf-2(e1370) III; muEx158. Show Description

Sterile at 25C; grow at 20C or less. muEx158 contains GFP-tagged daf-16 c isoform (described as a1 isoform in Lin, et al. Nat Genet. 2001) with 4 Ser/Thr residues mutated to Ala, which rescues daf-16 mutants from defective dauer formation and also partially rescues longevity defect of daf-16; glp-1 double mutants.

CL4176 C. elegans smg-1(cc546) I; dvIs27 X. Show Description
dvIs27 [myo-3p::A-Beta (1-42)::let-851 3'UTR) + rol-6(su1006)] X. Rollers. Temperature sensitive: needs to be propagated at 15C. Upshift larval animals to check that the worms get paralyzed and give offspring that arrest as eggs/early larvae. This strain produces low levels of beta amyloid peptide even when grown at low temperature, and therefore there is always some selection for loss of transgene copies. It is recommended to maintain growing stock plates at 15-16 degrees C by transferring small numbers of animals each generation rather than by "chunking", which increases the effective population size and therefore the chance of a relatively rare transgene loss, and then this revertant taking over the population. The strain should also be frozen shortly after being received. This strain can only be sent to academic users and not to commercial organizations.

DDP1 C. elegans uonEx1. Show Description
uonEx1 [unc-54::alpha-synuclein::CFP + unc-54::alpha-synuclein::YFP(Venus)]. No additional transformation marker was included in the array. uonEx1 also known as SC+SV in reference publications. Reduced lifespan (25-35% lower) and reduced pharyngeal pumping rate compared to N2. Novel transgenic strain for monitoring the influence of genetic and/or environmental factors on the extent of alpha-synuclein aggregation using FRET signals. Because the two fusion proteins are separate, FRET is only possible when synuclein aggregation brings a CFP tag very close to a YFP tag within an aggregate. We suggest using this strain in conjunction with the positive control (high FRET) strain DDP2 or with strain NL5901 which shows opposite changes in FRET. References: Nagarajan A, et al.

DWP219 C. elegans daam-1(ups39) V. Show Description
Superficially wild-type. ups39 is a CRISPR-engineered deletion within daam-1. daam-1(ups39) encodes an in-frame stop codon near the start of its FH2-coding sequence, and a 1-nt frame shift due to the LoxP site, and is thus predicted encode a non-functional formin.

Visible on dissection microscope at high magnification. Complex transgene insertion in place of Mos1 allele ttTi5605. Useful for following "invisible" insertions at ttTi5605 site by Mos1 Single Copy gene Insertion (MosSCI). Please note: The insertion was a complex event pulling in more than one transgene and parts of the array. Therefore, the exact molecular structure of the insert is not known. Therefore the strain should NOT be used as a control for insert copy number or other detailed molecular controls of MosSCI insertions. Succesfully used as a balancer for the ttTi5605 locus.
