Stock IDSD01440
Strain NameIA417
AKAhpo1-2 II
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic Descriptionhpo1-2/hpo1-2 (hpo1-2; II)
MAC Knockins/outs
MIC Knockins/outs
Gene of InterestHPO1 (hypoangular)
OriginAn F2 progeny following an outcross to B2086 VIa of a mutant clone resulting from nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis of IA264 in 1990 followed by cytogamy. [A sister-clone to IA418]
PublicationsFrankel J, Jenkins LM, Nelsen EM, Stoltzman CA. 1993. Hypoangular: A gene potentially involved in specifying positional information in a ciliate, tetrahymena thermophila. Dev Biol 160(2):333-54.
CommentsA complex phenotype with contractile vacuole pores too close to the oral apparatus, and clockwise slippage of oral primordia. The phenotype is more strongly expressed at 28 degrees C and less strongly at 39 degrees than it is in hpo1-1 (IA393).
