Current First Pass Curator form

"flagged" = WBPapers that have been flagged for that particular data type but not curated yet or not assessed for curation status yet; "flagged-done" = WBPapers that have been flagged and curated. These papers can be used as a source for verified curation flag examples.

Automatation status Data type Description Examples of info sent to data curator Curator Flagged
Gene Symbol (main/other/sequence) Genes studied in this paper (flagged-done): New symbol for known locus or new locus defined. Alerts curators to newly cloned genes so that they can update a previously existing concise description, if needed. "UNC-80 = F25C8.3"; "We refer to the long F59F5.2/.8 transcript as glo-3 and the F59F5.2 transcript as glo-3 short (Figure 5A)."; "tbc-1=F20D1.2 table S3"; "nre-1 (uncloned)"; "we have designated K02B9.1 as meg-1 and K02B9.2 as meg-2 (meg, maternal-effect germ-cell defective).",
Mapping Data Genetic mapping data (flagged): 3-factor interval mapping-genetic only, no SNP interval mapping; mapping with Df, breakpoints, Dp "in suppl: In three-factor mapping with unc-11(e47) dpy-5(e61) the...defect mapped between the two genes (9/16 Dpy non-Unc and 4/14 Unc non-Dpy were chemotaxis defective)"; "glo- 3(kx90), glo-3(kx94), and glo-3(zu446) were complemented by nDf19...similar to nearby genes vab-3 and daf-12"; "fig.1 ...breakpoint was not mapped precisely but idDf3 completely removes sequences of fem-1, drp-1..."; "mapping data in suppl methods: We mapped sa321 by its daf-7 suppression phenotype to the unc-62 dpy-11 interval (unc-62 (4/10) sa321 (6/10) dpy-11), which excludes scd-2. Therefore, sa321 is not allelic with scd-2."
Gene Function Gene function (flagged-done): Discussion of new function of a gene "A Novel Role for the SMG-1 Kinase in Lifespan and Oxidative Stress Resistance in Caenorhabditis elegans"; "Here we describe the isolation of mutations in two adjacent, divergently transcribed open reading frames (eri-6 and eri-7) that fail to complement...The ERI-6/7 protein is a superfamily I helicase that both negatively regulates the exogenous RNAi pathway and functions in an endogenous RNAi pathway."
in progress Gene Regulation on Expression Level Altered gene expression (flagged-done): Gene expression level change in genetic background, ie, gfp expression (or any other reporter) increases or decrease; expression level change under certain chemical/physical conditions, ie, drugs, heat shock, etc.; expression location change in genetic background, missexpression, ie, nucleus, cytoplasma, etc.; no change in gene expression in genetic background if mentioned in paper. Basically, paper reports changes or lack of changes in gene expression level or pattern due to genetic background, chemical, temperature or other experimental treatment. "Figure 5. Loss of hcf-1 Promotes the DAF-16 Transcriptional Regulation of Several Target Genes"; "To investigate whether SMG-1 controls DAF-16 sub-cellular localization...DAF-16::GFP was localized in both the cytoplasm and the nucleus in all tissues of worms after smg-1 inactivation...(Figure 3)...daf-2 RNAi induced DAF-16::GFP nuclear accumulation (Figure 3)...SMG-1 does not regulate DAF-16 activity through its sequestration into the cytoplasm"; "Interestingly, the eri-6/7 transsplicing reporter is more highly and broadly expressed when RNAi is attenuated by inactivation of the Argonaute gene rde-1 (Supplementary Fig. 12)...transgenes are generally expressed at higher levels when RNAi is defective. Quantitative RT–PCR revealed that eri-6/7 mRNA levels are not increased in animals lacking RDE-1 (data not shown)."
Expression Data Expression pattern data (flagged-done): Temporal and spatial (e.g. tissue, subcellular, etc) distribution of genes in a wild-type background. Include: Reporter gene analysis, antibody staining, In situ hybridization, RT_PCR, Western, Northern. Exclude: all markers (antibodies or reporter genes) used to label certain tissues or subcellular structure. This flag also alerts curators for cross-checking CCC semi-automation for missed papers. Further clarification "Figure 2. HCF-1 Is a Ubiquitously Expressed Nuclear Protein"; "eri-7 promoter::gfp and eri-6 promoter::rfp transgenes are expressed in overlapping patterns, with co-expression in hypodermal cells and two pairs of sensory head neurons (ASK and ASI; Fig. 2c). The eri-7 promoter also expresses in the somatic gonad.",
Marker Transgene marker Reporters used to mark certain tissue, subcellular structure or life stage.: Tissue-specific Integrated only transgene and antibodies markers. Reporters used to mark certain tissue, subcellular structure or life stage. Do not flag constructs used as injection markers or any reporter constructs that are not integrated.,
Microarray Microarray(flagged-done): Any microarray data "yes"
in progress RNAi RNAi(flagged-done): Phenotypes/results are discussed for less than 100 RNAi experiments "yes"
Large-Scale RNAi RNAi(flagged-done): Phenotypes/results are discussed for more than 100 RNAi experiments "yes"
DONE Transgene Integrated transgene (flagged-done): Reagent: Textpresso will extract cononical transgene names (e.g. xxIn#). Flag paper if an integrated transgene is discussed but does not have a canoncial name and or if a strain was used that contains an integrated transgene that was not already picked up by textpresso. Patterns; Is, In. Keywords: microbombardment. 'Ex' transgenes are curated when they are used by other experiments, such as phenotype assay or Expr_pattern, so there is no need to flag them. "Textpresso : WBPaper00032232 muIs71 muIs84 rwIs3 xrIs87 -- 20081012 ..."; "table 1"
Overexpression Overexpression (flagged): Over expression of something results in a phenotype "High expression of the constitutively activated SCD-2(neu*) receptor caused 100% of animals to arrest in the first larval stage (L1), with no overt anatomical defects"; "Fig. 6. CRIP overexpression also affects epithelial shape", (add Variation phenotype people)
Structure Information Structural information (flagged): NMR structure, functional domain info for a protein "removal of the first 50aa causes mislocalization of the protein"; "fig.1, fig.8"; "yes, in paper and supplemental materials"; "FIGURE 5.

Comparison of RDE-4 binding properties to variants lacking, or with mutations in, dsRBM1."
Functional Complementation Functional Complementation (flagged): Functional redundancy, rescue by overexpression of extragenic sequence "exc-2 is rescued by exc-9 overexpression"; "...meg-2 functions redundantly with meg-1. Each transgene can rescue the sterility of meg-1(vr10) or meg-1(vr11)... The partial rescue of meg-1 mutants by GFPTMEG-2 suggests that extra copies of MEG-2 can compensate for the absence of MEG-1, implying that the overall level of MEG-1 and MEG-2 is important for proper germline development."; "In transformation experiments, we identified a cosmid, C26G6, which could rescue the egl-32 phenotype. Subclones of this cosmid containing the predicted open reading frame (ORF) T08G11.2 can also rescue egl-32 (Figures 3a & b). Several lines of evidence, however, suggest that egl-32 does not encode T08G11.2, but rather that they are interacting loci"

Site of Action 'Tissue/Cell. Site of action (flagged-done): e.g. anatomy(tissue/cell)-specific expression rescues mutant phenotype; RNAi in rrf-1 background determines that the gene acts in the germ line "By contrast, a gcy-28.d cDNA rescued chemotaxis when expressed under a panneuronal promoter (Figure 5C), under the AWC-selective odr-3 promoter (Figure 5D), or under the AWCON-selective str-2 promoter (Figure 5E). The results with gcy-28.c suggest that gcy-28 may have roles in multiple neurons; nevertheless, the full rescue with gcy-28.d suggests that gcy-28 can function cell-autonomously in AWCON."; "Whereas mutant smn-1(ok355) animals expressing muscle-directed smn-1 showed only weak phenotypic rescue in a subset of animals, pan-neuronal expression of smn-1 produced stronger rescue effects (Fig. 7A)."

Identification of genes that regulate clec-85::gfp expression"
Sanger Gene Structure Correction Gene structure correction - need to make sure Sanger is responsible for the clone (flagged): Gene Structure Correction (Gene Structure is different from the one in Wormbase: e.g. different splice-site, SL1 instead of SL2, etc.) "...JA:F59F5.2 targets two predicted genes, F59F5.2 and F59F5.8. Two previously isolated cDNAs, yk1328a05 and yk571h2, suggested that F59F5.2 and F59F5.8 are a single gene that is alternatively spliced to produce two transcripts. We independently isolated F59F5.2/.8 cDNAs from both adult and embryonic stages, supporting the conclusion that F59F5.2 and F59F5.8 are a single gene (see MATERIALS AND METHODS). We refer to the long F59F5.2/.8 transcript as glo-3 and the F59F5.2 transcript as glo-3 short (Figure 5A)."
