    In combination with other aberrations

    Lethal in combination with Df(2R)P34; Df(2R)edl-L19/Df(2R)P34 animals die as late embryos or early larvae.

    NOT in combination with other aberrations

    Hybrid females carrying Df(2R)P34 and derived from a cross of D.melanogaster females to D.simulans males do not differ in viability from hybrid females carrying a wild-type D.melanogaster prod allele.

    Does not uncover Dsim\jba in D.melanogaster/D.simulans hybrids. Does not uncover Dsim\pm in D.melanogaster/D.simulans hybrids.

    Other Comments

    The Df(2R)P34 chromosome acts as a dominant weak 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 this is a false positive result (the suppressor is not within the bounds of the deficient region) because the suppressor maps to the tip of 2L rather than to the site of the deficiency.

    "55E6--F3;56C" was stated as revision.
