Genetic mapping information
Comments

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

Comments on Cytology

Distal breakpoint is 5' of the bowl polyadenylation site.

In combination with other aberrations

Df(2L)ed-dp/Df(2L)M24F11 transheterozygotes exhibit delayed ventral furrow invagination, mesoderm spreading defects and a malformed germ band.

Df(2L)ed-dp/Df(2L)sc19-8 transheterozygotes exhibit delayed ventral furrow invagination, mesoderm spreading defects and a malformed germ band.

Fails to complement Df(2L)tutl4.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Df(2L)ed-dp embryos have normal commissures and longitudinal connectives.

Approximately a quarter of embryos from Df(2L)ed-dp heterozygotes exhibit a delay in the invagination of the ventral furrow as compared to controls.

Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.

Does not cause unconditional lethality in hybrid females when heterozygous with D.simulans chromosome.

Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.

Reduced viability and fertility.

Other Comments
 

The Df(2L)ed-dp chromosome may act as a dominant suppressor of telomeric silencing (assayed using the effect of the chromosome on the eye colour phenotype of flies carrying "P{wvar}KR3-2", a stable "brown-red" variant of the P{3'WP-2,wvar}2Lt insertion), but the eye colour phenotype in the presence of Df(2L)ed-dp overlaps the eye colour phenotype in a wild-type background so it cannot be unequivocally demonstrated that the deficiency chromosome uncovers a suppressor of telomeric silencing.
