Genetic mapping information

This deletion removes multiple ribosomal protein-coding genes (in addition to other genes).

Comments on Cytology

Simple deficiency. Breakpoints are 14B6;15A2 or 14C2-14C4;15B2

Limits of break 1 from polytene analysis (FBrf0079877) Left limit of break 2 from polytene analysis (FBrf0076870) Right limit of break 2 from polytene analysis (FBrf0079877)

Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.

Intermediate second site non-complementing phenotype with zipEbr and zipmhc-c6.1 : malformed phenotype penetrance 25-75%.

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)
