Genetic mapping information

This deletion removes a single ribosomal protein-coding gene (though other genes are also removed).

Inferred to overlap with: Df(2L)H20.

No effect on In(1)wm4h position-effect variegation.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.

Heterozygotes have a reduced number of sensilla trichodea on the antenna compared to wild-type flies.

Minute phenotype is not suppressed by RpL32+t3.3.
