Strain Genotype Species Description
PS2442 dpy-20(e1282) IV; syIs44 V. C. elegans syIs44 [hsp-16p::lacI::GFP + lacO(256) + dpy-20(+)] V. Non-Dpy. Upon heat shock, two intense spots of nuclear fluorescence due to lacO in the chromosome, and a diffuse nuclear fluorescence due to nuclear-localized GFP-lacI. Array derived from Fire Lab vector pPD49-78 and dpy-20 rescuing construct pMH86. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it from the CGC. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects.
TY5434 syIs44 V. C. elegans syIs44 [hsp-16p::lacI::GFP + lacO(256) + dpy-20(+)] V. Heatshock induces expression of lacI::GFP in the soma, which binds to integrated lacO arrays. lacI::GFP expression is silenced in the germline. Derived by out-crossing PS2442 to remove e1282.
