C. elegans Endogenous Tagging Packages

C. elegans Degron Tagging Service


You can knock-in a degron tag on an endogenous protein or fluorescent protein with our degron tagging service.

Adding a degron tag  enables you to:

  • use protein degradation as an complementary method to genetic knockouts or RNAi
  • tag your protein of interested for degradation at the protein level
  • control the timing of protein degradation with an inducer (e.g. auxin, blue light)
  • confirm degradation of your protein when paired with a fluorescent sequence
  • visualize protein localization to organelles or other membranes

Choose From a Variety of Systems

You can choose from a variety of degron inducible and developmental systems including Auxin Inducible Degradation, Photosensitive or blue-light inducible degradation, degron-tagged reporters of membrane topology, and OMA-1 tags that work to degrade protein from the 1-cell stage.

Use our degron tags in combination with the fluorescent tagging to visualize protein expression and degradation.

Things to consider when ordering your strain:

  • Degron tag best suited for your experiments
  • Best terminus to tag

For auxin-inducible degradation, TIR1 is necessary to generate a functional recognition complex and achieve successful target degradation. If you do not have a TIR1-expressing strain ready, we can suggest the most suitable commercially available strain, or we can generate a custom TIR1 strain for you.

If you are unsure, our genetic engineering experts will be glad to advise you. Contact us.
