Strains carrying this transgene

Strain Genotype Species Description
JPS572 slo-1(js379) V; vsIs48; vxEx345. C. elegans vsIs48 [unc-17::GFP]. GFP expressed in all cholinergic neurons. vxEx345 [slo-1p::slo-1(+)::mCherry::unc-54 3'UTR + myo-2p::mCherry]. Pick animals with mCherry expression in the pharynx to maintain the array. vxEx345 rescues ethanol-independent and ethanol intoxication phenotypes of a slo-1(null) mutants. vxEx345 expresses worm BK channel protein (slo-1(+)) with a C-terminal mCherry tag.
