Reverse genetics by chemical mutagenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Abstract

Traditional reverse genetics on yeast, mice and other organisms uses homologous recombination with transgenic DNA to interrupt a target gene. Here we report that target-selected gene inactivation can be be achieved in Caenorhabditis elegans with the use of chemical mutagens. We use PCR to selectively visualize deletions in genes of interest; the method is… (More)
