AA120 C. elegans dhIs26. Show Description
dhIs26 [daf-12a::GFP + lin-15(+)]. DAF-12::GFP localized primarily in nucleus, except during mitosis. Expressed widely in most cells including tissues modified for dauer formation or by stage from embryo to adult, but most elevated and widespread during L2.
AA278 C. elegans dhIs59. Show Description
dhIs59 [Topo::daf-9::GFP + lin-15(+)]. Perinuclear expression in a ventral pair of bilateral neurons identified as the IL1Vs or URAVs in the anterior ganglia. By mid-L2, expression in the cytoplasm of the hypodermis, the syncitial epidermis, but absent from midline, epidermal seam cells. Levels peak around the L2 molt and diminish during L4. In some cases, transient expression seen in the L3 vulval blast cells. Also expressed within the hermaphrodite spermatheca starting in late L4 larvae and continuing eve in old adults. In males, expression in IL1V/URAVs and hypodermis but not somatic gonad. In dauer larvae, strong expression in IL1V/URAV and specifically extends into axonal but not dendritic processes. In post-dauer stages, expression in a pattern similar to reproductively growing animals, except expression is absent in the hypodermis. Grow at 20C. May still contain lin-15(n765) mutation in the background.
AA699 C. elegans din-1(hd36) II. Show Description
non-Daf. Temperature-sensitive phenotypes: at 20C half of the animals are egg-laying defective with occasional mispositioned gonadal arms; at 25C, 18% arrest as embryos: those animals that hatch usually display variable morphology defects in body and pharynx; nearly all animals that live to adults are small, clear, slightly uncoordinated, constipated, and virtually sterile. Maintain at 20C or below.
ABR212 C. elegans acd-1(sta6) delm-2(ok1822) I. Show Description
acd-1 and delm-2 are tandem paralogs. This double mutant was created by CRISPR-engineered deletion of acd-1 in a delm-2(ok1822) background (parental strain RB1523). acd-1(sta6) is predicted to be a null allele (~200bp indel causing frameshift in exon 4).

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. Genetics Early online November 30, 2018; https://doi.org/10.1534/genetics.118.301775.
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.

AGK192 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; zdIs13 IV; armIs5. Show Description
zdIs13 [tph-1p::GFP] IV. armIs5 [zfp-1(fosmid)::FLAG + unc-119(+)]. Integrated zfp-1 transgene expressed in the germline. Fosmid-based zfp-1::FLAG transgene fully rescues stress-sensitivity and reduced lifespan in zfp-1(ok554) homozygotes. ChIP with anti-FLAG antibody detects ZFP-1::FLAG localization to promoters of highly expressed genes. References: Mansisidor AR, et al. PLoS Genet. 2011 Sep;7(9):e1002299. Avgousti DC, et al.

AGK233 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx58. Show Description
armEx58 [WRM0611aH08-Del8mer + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses a derivative WRM0611aH08 fosmid. The WRM0611aH08 fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. This derivative fosmid construct lacks the upstream 8-mer motif (CTGTTTCA) next to 21U-3372. The expression of this individual 21U-RNA is lost in transgenic animals. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment. Reference: Cecere G, et al. Mol Cell. 2012 Sep 14;47(5):734-45.

armEx53 [WRM0611aH08 + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses the WRM0611aH08 fosmid construct. This fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. Expression of this fosmid construct in JU258 worms restores the expression of the missing 21U-RNAs in the germline, as measured by RT-qPCR. Reference: Cecere G, et al. Mol Cell. 2012 Sep 14;47(5):734-45.
AGK26 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; armEx5. Show Description

Nuclear expression of zfp-1::GFP is observed ubiquitously in somatic cells in all developmental stages; high levels of GFP expression is observed in oocytes with lower levels of expression in the distal germline.
