Strain NameIA197
AKAcdaH-1 VI
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic DescriptioncdaH-1/cdaH-1 (cdaH-1; VI)
MAC Knockins/outs
MIC Knockins/outs
Gene of InterestCDAH (cell division arrest H)
OriginProgeny of a genomic-exclusion cross of an F2 derived from an outcross to B1975 III of an assortant derived from nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis of B1975 in 1976.
PublicationsBriefly described in Frankel J. 2008. What do genic mutations tell us about the structural patterning of a complex single-celled organism? Eukaryot Cell 7(10):1617-39, (p. 1628 and Fig.12).
CommentsFailure to form a fission zone, with anterior migration of the oral primordium within a sub-surface vesicle (39°). Poor viability in crosses. Clear-cut temperature-sensitive expression with 100% penetrance at 39° C. Located on chromosome 5. A detailed phenotypic analysis was carried out on a homozygous (F2) clone of the previous sexual generation, which is now extinct.
