Strain Genotype Species Description
KG5082 ceIs308. C. elegans ceIs308 [mig-13p::ins-22::Emerald + mig-13p::mCherry + odr-1p::RFP]; Linked to IVC (ceP86; 3.37): 0/17 recombinants. Expresses INS-22::Emerald to mark Dense Core Vesicles in the the DA9 and VA12 cholinergic motor neurons, and also mCherry in the same neurons to help identify the boundaries of the somas, axons, and dendrites. Useful for visualizing Dense Core Vesicles in a single, well-segregated neuron in living animals. When picking homozygotes from crosses with other strains, focus on the brightness of the RFP puncta in the cord. Autofluorescence in the worm body can make it difficult to gauge differences in brightness of the odr-1::RFP marker. Reference: Edwards SL, et al. (manuscript in revision).
