RM3571 C. elegans sup-1(e995 e2636) III. Show Description
Putative null allele; e995 e2636 homozygotes are superficially wild type in appearance, development, and behavior (except for a modest 20-25% decrease in swimming rate), and do not suppress unc-17(e245). e995 corresponds to G84E (gga>>gaa) and e2636 corresponds to W58stop (tgg>>tag). PCR methods for scoring e995 and e2636 mutations in individual worms are presented in the Supporting Information File of Mathews et al., 2012. Reference: Mathews EA, et al.

RM3659 C. elegans snb-1(e1563) V. Show Description
e1563 homozygotes are superficially wild-type in appearance, development, and behavior. e1563 is a strong, dominant suppressor of UNC-17 G347R mutations (including e245, e359, p300).

RM3670 C. elegans sup-1(e995) III. Show Description
e995 homozygotes are superficially wild type in appearance, development, and behavior. e995 is a strong, dominant suppressor of UNC-17 G347R mutations (including e245, e359, p300). e995 corresponds to G84E (gga>>gaa) in the SUP-1 transmembrane domain. PCR method for scoring the e995 mutation in individual worms is presented in the Supporting Information File of Mathews et al., 2012. [Note: although it has been suggested that unc-123 and sup-1 represent the same gene (Walthall et al. 1993), sequence analysis demonstrated no molecular lesions at the sup-1 locus in unc-123 mutants (Mathews et al., 2012). Therefore unc-123 and sup-1 represent different genes.] Reference: Mathews EA, et al. Genetics. 2012 Dec;192(4):1315-25.

KG4247 C. elegans ceIs201 I. Show Description
ceIs201 [unc-17p::ins-22::Venus + unc-17p::RFP + unc-17p::ssmCherry + myo-2p::RFP]; integration site maps to I:0.77. Expresses INS-22::Venus to mark Dense Core Vesicles in the cholinergic nervous system, including the ventral cord cholinergic motor neurons. Also expresses mCherry in the same neurons to help identify the boundaries of the somas, axons, and dendrites. ssmCherry is mCherry with a secretion signal on its N-terminus, which is constitutively secreted and taken up by coelomoctyes in the pseuodcoelomic space, making it a useful marker for those coelomocytes. The INS-22::Venus also gets secreted by DCVs and taken up by coelomocytes. The myo-2::RFP is a co-tranformation marker that lights up the pharyngeal muscle cells and is useful for crossing the integrant into various mutant backgrounds. Reference: Hoover CM, et al.
