Creation of low-copy integrated transgenic lines in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Abstract

In Caenorhabditis elegans, transgenic lines are typically created by injecting DNA into the hermaphrodite germline to form multicopy extrachromosomal DNA arrays. This technique is a reliable means of expressing transgenes in C. elegans, but its use has limitations. Because extrachromosomal arrays are semistable, only a fraction of the animals in a… (More)
