This deletion removes a single ribosomal protein-coding gene (though other genes are also removed).
Flies heterozygous for the deletion do not show a Minute bristle phenotype.
Df(3L)vin2 mutants show defects in head involution. The mouth hooks are present but the labrum and epistomal sclerites are missing and at least part of the cephalopharyngeal skeleton remains at the surface of the embryo.
The level of 7-monoenes is normal in heterozygous males. The level of 7,11-dienes is significantly decreased in heterozygous females compared to controls.
Homozygous embryos show variable defects in germband retraction, and some are twisted. Malpighian tubule elongation is incomplete.
Heterozygosity for this deletion enhances the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.
Fertile when heterozygous with haync2.
