Strains carrying this variation

Strain Genotype Species Description
KB3 kgb-1(um3) IV. C. elegans Temperature sensitive sterile at 26C, with EMO oocytes. Grows at 15C or 20C.
KB7 kgb-1(um3) kgb-2(km16) IV. C. elegans Deletion alleles. Can be maintained at 20C. Sterile at 26C. Can use PCR with the following primer to determine whether both deletions are present. (5'end)5'GGTCTACCAGAGTTTGTGCGCAATC3' (3'end)5'GATAGCCTTGCACTTCGTTG3'. PCR products from wild type show two bands; kgb-1 gene shows a smaller band; kgb-2 gene shows a bigger band.The double mutant should have no PCR product.
