|JEL1197||C. elegans||wrdSi3 II; dpy-27(xoe41[dpy-27::AID::myc]) III; him-8(me4) IV. Show Description
wrdSi3 [sun-1p::TIR1::F2A::mTagBFP2::AID*::NLS::tbb-2 3'UTR] (II:0.77). Endogenous dpy-27 locus tagged with AID element and myc to create a conditional allele using the auxin-inducible degron (AID). In absence of auxin, ~40% of worms are male due to him-8(me4) mutation. In the presence of auxin, ~100% of worms are male (hermaphrodite-lethal due to degradation of AID-tagged DPY-27). Reference: Li Q, et al. Inducible degradation of dosage compensation protein DPY-27 facilitates isolation of Caenorhabditis elegans males for molecular and biochemical analyses. bioRxiv 2022.01.27.478040; doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/2022.01.27.478040.
