OriginKazufumi Mochizuki
PublicationsMochizuki K, Fine NA, Fujisawa T, Gorovsky MA. 2002. Analysis of a piwi-related gene implicates small RNAs in genome rearrangement in tetrahymena. Cell 110(6):689-99.
CommentsB2086 X CU428 were transformed with TWI1 KO construct (whole coding was replaced by MTT-neo-BTU) and endogenous TWI1 gene was pushed out. Somatic transformant
this strain can mate with at least B2086, cu427, TWI1-KO4,-KO10
