Strain NameIA234
AKApsmC-1 IIa
SpeciesT. thermophila
Genetic DescriptionpsmC-1/psmC-1 (psmC-1; II)
MAC Knockins/outs
MIC Knockins/outs
Gene of InterestPSMC (pseudomacrostome C)
OriginGenomic exclusion progeny following an outcross to B2079-X-II of a mutant clone that resulted from nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis in 1979 of SB210 followed by cytogamy.
PublicationsBriefly mentioned 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.1627).
CommentsElongated phenotype with development of large oral-replacement or misplaced cell division oral primordia, especially in rich medium, at 39o C. The only known mutant allele of this gene. Located on chromosome 5. Expression is highly medium-sensitive as well as temperature-sensitive.
