In combination with other aberrations

Df(2L)el28/Df(2L)b83d29a adults have a weak "elbow" phenotype. Df(2L)el28/Df(2L)b84a2 animals often do not survive to adulthood, those that do have an "elbow" phenotype.

Heterozygotes with Df(2L)RA5 exhibit a leaky female sterile phenotype (uncovering fs(2)35Ec).

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.
