Suppression and function of X-linked lethal and sterile mutations in Caenorhabditis elegans.

We have expanded our collection of recessive lethal and sterile mutants in the region of the X chromosome balanced by mnDp1(X;V), about 15% of the X linkage map, to a total of 54 mutants. The mutations have been mapped with respect to 20 overlapping deficiencies and five X duplications, and they have been assigned to 24 genes by complementation testing… CONTINUE READING
