Strain Genotype Species Description
AV271 him-3(me80)/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-? qIs50] (IV;V). C. elegans Balanced heterozygotes are GFP+ Unc and segregate GFP+ Unc (heterozygotes), non-GFP non-Unc him-3(me80) homozygotes, and dead eggs (nT1 homozygotes). him-3(me80) homozygotes are viable and non-Unc. They produce more than 85% dead eggs and a large fraction (11%) of the survivors are males (Him phenotype). Cytologically they exhibit a reduced level of HIM-3 loading and fewer stretches of SYP-1 than WT. In diakinesis-stage oocytes, they contain a mixture of bivalents and univalents. Maintain by picking Unc.
