Strain Genotype Species Description
TQ1101 lite-1(xu7) X. C. elegans Defective phototaxis (light avoidance). To identify lite-1(xu7) homozygotes, place day 1 adults on a freshly seeded NGM plate with a thin lawn of OP50. Deliver 2 second pulses of short wavelength light (UV, purple, blue) from an arc lamp to the head of a worm that is slowly moving forward through a 5-10x objective lens in conjunction with a room lens under a fluorescent dissection scope. Manually move the plate so only the anterior of the worm appears in the field of view. Wild-type worms respond by initiating reversals while homozygous mutants do not. Maintain under normal conditions. Reference: Liu J, et al (2010) Nature Neurosci 13:715-22.
TQ2183 lite-1(xu7) X; xuEx705. C. elegans xuEx705 [npr-9p::GCaMP3.0 + npr-9::DsRed2B]. Superficially wild-type. Maintain by picking red fluorescent animals; DsRed might not be visible at lower magnifications. Reference: Piggott BJ, et al. Cell. 2011 Nov 11;147(4):922-33.
TQ3032 lite-1(xu7) X; xuEx1040. C. elegans xuEx1040 [nmr-1p::G-CaMP3.0 + nmr-1p::DsRed]. Pick fluorescent animals to maintain. Reference: Piggott BJ, et al. Cell. 2011 Nov 11;147(4):922-33.
