ZG31 C. elegans hif-1(ia4) V. Show Description
Healthy and fertile in standard lab conditions, but unable to adapt to 1% oxygen. When hif-1(+) animals are incubated in1% oxygen, >94% will complete embryogenesis and larval development. In contrast, hif-1(ia4) mutants exhibit 66% embryonic lethality and 9% larval lethality in 1% oxygen. The requirement of hif-1 is alleviated if the oxygen level is increased to 2%. The ia4 mutation is a 1231 bp deletion of the second, third, and fourth exons, which encode much of the helix-loop-helix and PAS domains. Analysis of ESTs suggests that there are at least 4 alternatively spliced hif-1 transcripts. The ia4 deletion introduces a frameshift and a premature stop in the three longest forms.

In WT, GABAergic synapses visualized with juIs1 (GABAergic nervous system specific synaptobrevin::GFP) marker show uniformly spaced and sized puncta. fsn-1(hp1); scd-2(ok565) animals have puncta close to WT shape. This is more evident in larvae than in adults.
ZM9062 C. elegans hpIs583. Show Description
hpIs583 [acr-2(s)p::tomm20::miniSOG::SL2::RFP]. Maintain in the covered box to avoid unnecessary exposure to ambient light. Stimulation with blue light (460 nm LED light for 30 min at 4 Hz with 2 mW/mm2), induces mitochondrial-miniSOG ablation of A- and B-class motor neurons. During neuron ablation, it is recommended to keep the lid of the plate open and use a heat disipator to keep the air cool. acr-2s(p) is a 1.8 kb fragment of the acr-2 promoter driving expression in only A- and B- class motor neurons (described in Jospin et al, 2009 PLoS Biol. Dec;7(12):e1000265). Generated in N2 background. Reference: Gao S, et al. eLife 2018 Jan 23;7:e29915. doi: 10.7554/eLife.29915.
ZM9583 C. elegans unc-2(hp858) X. Show Description

ZX679 C. elegans zxIs12. Show Description
zxIs12 [F49H12.4P::ChR2(H134R)::mCherry + F49H12.4P::GFP]. Strain expresses Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2(H134R)::mCherry) and GFP (as marker) in PVD and AQR, as well as in a non-identified tail neuron, using the F49H12.4 promoter. When grown in the presence of all-trans retinal and illuminated with blue light, animals show strong forward locomotion escape behavior, which can be quantified using locomotion video tracking. The strain can be used to analyze function of PVD cells, and to estimate the role of specific genes in the function of this polymodal nociceptor, downstream of depolarization via ChR2. All-trans retinal needs to be added with OP50 bacteria when seeding plates to render ChR2 functional. References: Husson S, et al. Curr Biol. 2012 May 8;22(9):743-52. Smith CJ, et al. Neuron. 2013 Jul 24;79(2):266-80. Cohen E, et al. Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience 2104 59C: 85-96.
ZX819 C. elegans lite-1(ce314); zxIs12. Show Description
zxIs12 [F49H12.4P::ChR2(H134R)::mCherry + F49H12.4P::GFP]. Strain expresses Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2(H134R)::mCherry) and GFP (as marker) in PVD and AQR, as well as in a non-identified tail neuron, using the F49H12.4 promoter (see also ZX679). When grown in the presence of all-trans retinal and illuminated with blue light, animals show strong forward locomotion escape behavior, which can be quantified using locomotion video tracking. The strain can be used to analyze function of PVD cells, and to estimate the role of specific genes in the function of this polymodal nociceptor, downstream of depolarization via ChR2. All-trans retinal needs to be added with OP50 bacteria when seeding plates to render ChR2 functional. This strain is in lite-1(ce314) background, which eliminates the photophobic behavioral response that will be startled by blue light when longer light stimuli are used (>1s). To not confuse the photophobic behavior induced by LITE-1, with the PVD evoked escape behavior, this strain is needed for experiments with prolonged photostimulation. References: Husson S, et al.
