Stock IDSD01450
Strain NameIA282
AKAcdaI-3 II
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic DescriptioncdaI-3/cdaI-3 (cdaI-3; 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 IA264 followed by cytogamy in 1981
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 less severe version of the same phenotype.
CommentsAborted fission-zone formation following an anterior sliding of the oral primordium (39 degrees).

Temperature-sensitive expression; fully penetrant at 39 degrees with extremely high expressivity; fission line often fails altogether to form. Allelic to cdaI-1 (IA237).
