In combination with other aberrations
Df(2L)el16/Df(2L)b83d29a animals do not usually survive to adulthood, escapers have a weak crippled legs phenotype. Df(2L)el16/Df(2L)b84a2 animals usually die as pharate adults, rare escapers have crippled legs and show an "elbow" phenotype.
Weakly suppresses the zeste phenotype in a z1 w11E4; Tp(1;2)TE35B homologue.
NOT in combination with other aberrations
Chromosome acts as a weak trans-suppressor of a physical interaction between tandemly duplicated copies of w+, an interaction that is required for the suppression of genes by z1.
