Strain Genotype Species Description
EU149 mex-3(or20)/hT1 I; +/hT1 V; lin-2(e1309) X. C. elegans Strain is egg-laying defective. Homozygous mex-3(or20) is a non-conditional maternal effect lethal: worms fill up with dead eggs. Heterozygotes bag with 11/16 dead embryos and larvae. About 10% of worms can lay eggs and be mated into for outcrossing. The mex-3(or20) mutant embryos produce excess body wall muscle anteriorly.
