Does not cause unconditional lethality in hybrid females when heterozygous with D.simulans chromosome.
Midgut development of mutant embryos is wild type.
Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.
Hemizygous embryos were examined with polarised light microscopy and antibody staining and found to have wild type muscle pattern and contraction.
