Abstract

An adult transgenic C. elegans expressing membrane targeted GFP and mCherry::Histone 2B fusion proteins that demarcate the cell membrane boundaries and nuclei respectively. Strong expression is seen throughout the germline and perdures through embryonic development. From Joshi et al., Developmental Dynamics 239:1539–1554, 2010.
