DDP2 C. elegans uonEx2. Show Description
uonEx2 [unc-54::CFP::YFP(Venus)]. No additional transformation marker was included in the array. uonEx2 also known as CV in reference publications. Lifespan and pharyngeal pumping rates are similar to N2. This is a high-FRET positive control strain for use in conjunction with DDP1. Because the CFP and YFP protein sequences are covalently fused together (and show little evidence of cleavage), FRET should be high and largely invariant since both fluorescent moieties are always in close proximity.
