A slight larval head defect is seen in Df(1)sd72b/Dp(1;Y)shi+1 animals. The bases of the mouth hooks are slightly reduced as are the H-piece and dental sclerites, but the cirri appear to be complete, and the lateral process is not truncated.
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: movement sluggish, muscle pattern incomplete and shape of attachment sites subtly altered.
Extreme sd phenotype over RpII215Ubl.
