In combination with other aberrations

Inferred to overlap with: Df(2R)WI213.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Shows no maternal enhancement of dpphr4.

Dominantly causes tergite defects in less than 50% of run3 heterozygotes.

Mitotic clones cannot be generated.

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

The Df(2R)bw-S46 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(2R)bw-S46 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.
