Translocations are often marked with a mutation, which results in a phenotype that makes the homozygote readily observable (‘‘Visible’’), thus facilitating selection of the heterozygote. In this way, either lethal or visible mutants can be balanced and the strain can be maintained in a heritably stable manner. The reciprocal translocation, eT1, illustrates the properties and uses of translocations in C. elegans. eT1, originally thought to be a mutation in an unc gene, was shown to have exchanged the right portion of chromosome III for the left portion of chromosome V without the loss of any essential material, and thus is homozygous viable (Rosenbluth and Baillie, 1981).
