AML17 C. elegans wtfIs2. Show Description
wtfIs2 [rig-3p::Chrimson::SL2::mCherry]. Transgenic animals express light-gated ion channel Chrimson and fluorescent protein mCherry in AVA neurons as well as nearby nearby pharyngeal neurons I1, I4, M4, NSM. Worms reverse more upon exposure to red light via optogenetic activation of AVA neurons. Reference: Kumar S, et al. PLoS Biol. 2023 Sep 21;21(9):e3002280. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.3002280.

AML344 C. elegans juSi164 unc-119(ed3) III; wtfIs263. Show Description
juSi164 [mex-5p::HIS-72::miniSOG + Cbr-unc-119(+)] III. wtfIs263 [rab-3p::AI::ChR2(H134R)::unc-54 3'UTR + rab-3p::AI::Voltron::unc-54 3'UTR + rab-3p::his-24::tagBFP::unc-54 3'UTR]. Keep plates covered to avoid unnecessary exposure to light. Pan-neuronal expression of ChR2 (H134R) along with Voltron volatage indicator and nuclear-localized tagBFP. Reporter construct contains an artificial intron (AI). Reference: Sharma AK, et al. Genetics 2024 May 11:iyae077. doi: 10.1093/genetics/iyae077 PMID: 38733622.
