A new mutation with a polycystin phenotypic spectrum in Caenorhabditis elegans

Allyson Whittaker, Gary Schindelman, Shahla Gharib & Paul W. Sternberg
lov-1 and pkd-2, which encode the C. elegans orthologs of human polycystin-1 and -2, are necessary for three particular aspects of male mating behavior. In a screen for male mating defective mutants with similar spectrum of mating defects, we identified a mutation that apparently defines a new locus, lov-3. We isolated the sy682 mutation in an ethyl-methane sulphonate (EMS)-screen of Caenorhabditis elegans strain PS1395 [genotype: plg-1(e2001d); him-5(e1490)] for mutant males that do not mate efficiently...
