l(3)87Dd << bk1 << mesA << yrt << bk2
This deletion removes a single ribosomal protein-coding gene (though other genes are also removed).
Breakpoint(s) molecularly mapped
proximal -201 to -213 Coordinates of either proximal or distal breakpoints given with respect to arbitrarily-chosen 0 (Spierer et al., 1983), '+' values to right, '-' values to left
Flies heterozygous for the deletion do not show a Minute bristle phenotype.
The presence of Ecol\lacZsim.7.8 construct fails to rescue lethality or the CNS phenotype. The construct shows that the midline cells are disorganised compared to wild type at stage 11 and at stage 13 are clustered near the ventral surface of the embryo leading to the collapse of the two lateral CNS hemiganglia and fusion of the longitudinal connectives.
