This deletion removes multiple ribosomal protein-coding genes (in addition to other genes).
Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.
Midgut development of mutant embryos is wild type.
Homozygous embryos are very abnormal compared to 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: no syncytial muscles develop, embryos are immobile, and visceral mesoderm development is also impaired.
Semilethal opposite r, r29, or r38 para- r- Two Minutes surround r ; the one on the left, M(1)14C, is new, the one on the right is RpS5 (Lefevre)
