Stock IDSD01462
Strain NameIA336
AKAcon2-1 V
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic Descriptioncon2-1/con2-1 (con2-1; V)
MAC Knockins/outs
MIC Knockins/outs
Gene of InterestCON2 (conical2)
OriginGenomic exclusion progeny following an outcross to B2079-X-II of a mutant clone that resulted from nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis in 1984 of IA264 followed by cytogamy
PublicationsNone
CommentsConical shape; expression slightly more pronounced at 39° than at 28° C. Division products are equal in size.

Very similar shape to the much more studied con1-1 mutant (J. Exp. Zool. 192: 237-258), but differs in that division products are approximately equal in size, indicating that conical shape does not per se lead to smaller posterior daughter cells.
