    In combination with other aberrations

    Df(3R)A41/Df(3R)R29 flies lack GLD enzyme activity.

    NOT in combination with other aberrations

    Homozygous embryos show severe defects in larval somatic musculature.

    The Df(3R)dsx29 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).

    Df(3R)p13/Df(3R)dsx29 heterozygotes lack all ventral chordotonal organs and usually all scolopodia of lch5. External sense organs are essentially unaffected.

    Males fertile when in combination with αTub84B7.
