Strain NameIA237
AKAcdaI-1 II
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic DescriptioncdaI-I/cdaI-1 (cdaI-1; II)
MAC Knockins/outs
MIC Knockins/outs
Gene of InterestCDAI (cell division arrest I)
OriginGenomic exclusion progeny following an outcross to B2079-X-II of a mutant clone that resulted from nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis of SB210 followed by cytogamy in 1979
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, with photo (Fig. 13) of a weaker allele (cdaI-2) with a similar phenotype.
CommentsTemperature-sensitive expression; fully penetrant at 39 degrees with high expressivity. Allelic to cdaI-2 (IA251) and cdaI-3 (IA282). Unequal fission-arrest following an anterior sliding of the oral primordium.
