Strain Genotype Species Description
SRS306 pha-1(e2123) III; lite-1(ce314) X; sraEx306. C. elegans sraEx306 [ser-2(prom2)::chop-2(H134R)::TagRFP + ser-2(prom2)::mKO + pBX(pha-1(+))]. Maintain at 25C. This transgenic line expresses mKO and TagRFP in AIY, AIZ and RME in the head, and has little response to blue light in the absence of ATR. In the presence of ATR asymmetrical stimulation of AIY causes the worm to turn in the same direction the head was bent when AIY was excited, whereas asymmetrical stimulation of AIZ or RME causes the worm to turn in the opposite direction to which the head was bent when AIZ or RME was excited.
