Strains carrying this transgene

Strain Genotype Species Description
JPS574 slo-1(js379) V; vsIs48; vxEx339. C. elegans vsIs48 [unc-17::GFP]. GFP expressed in all cholinergic neurons. vxEx339 [slo-1p::hslo(+)::mCherry::unc-54 3'UTR + myo-2p::mCherry]. Pick animals with mCherry expression in the pharynx to maintain the array. vxEx339 rescues ethanol-independent and ethanol intoxication phenotypes of a slo-1(null) mutants. vxEx339 expresses human BK channel protein (hslo(+)) with a C-terminal mCherry tag.
