Strain Genotype Species Description
VC36 unc-5(gk29) pmk-2(gk21)/nT1 IV; +/nT1 V. C. elegans F42G8.3. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, arrested nT1 aneuploid progeny, vulvaless nT1 homozygotes, and homozygous gk21 hermaphrodites (L1 arrest). gk21 appears to be linked to an uncharacterized unc-5 lesion: complementation tests with unc-5/+; dpy-11/+ males produced viable Unc-5 male and hermaphrodite progeny. Pick WT hermaphrodites and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
