Strain Genotype Species Description
MT8190 lin-15B&lin-15A(n765) nIs51 X. C. elegans nIs51 [egl-10(+) + lin-15(+)] X. Egl-C, Bor, hyperforaging, hyperactive locomotion, and male longevity and mating reduced. By Western blotting and staining the EGL-10 protein is highly overexpressed relative to N2. nIs51 was generated by injecting the lin-15 rescuing plasmid pEK1 at 50 ug/ml and the egl-10 rescuing fragment pMK21 at 80 ug/ml into MT1642 lin-15(n765) worms. The resulting strain was gamma irradiated and an integrant isolated, and was backcrossed to N2 four times. nIs51 was mapped to the right arm of X.
