The Df(2R)WMG chromosome does not 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).
Mutant embryos show complete fusion of the longitudinal and commissural nerve trunks - few intersegmental connections are maintained.
Acts as a dosage sensitive maternal modifier of run : causes tergite defects in greater than 50% of run3 heterozygotes.
Homozygous embryos show defects in segmentation, germband retraction, dorsal closure and head involution. Elongation of Malpighian tubule material is variable.
Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.
