Genetic mapping information

The 4:1..43778 release 6 coordinates of the left breakpoint are estimates. The left extent corresponds to the left end of the chromosome 4 genome assembly, because the breakpoint may reside in 4th chromosome centric heterochromatin. The right extent corresponds to the right end of PlexB, which published results say is deleted.

The 4:69326..441648 release 6 coordinates of the right breakpoint are estimates. The left extent corresponds to the left end of pan, which published results say is deleted. The right extent corresponds to the estimated position of the right end of polytene band 102B8, because published cytologies indicate the breakpoint lies in subdivision 102B.

Comments on Cytology

Restriction mapping suggests that the Df(4)M101-62f chromosome is rearranged rather than deleted.

In combination with other aberrations

Lethal in combination with Df(4)M101-63a, Df(4)Δ3M or Df(4)Δ9M. Inferred to overlap with: Df(4)M101-63a. Inferred to overlap with: Df(4)Δ3M. Inferred to overlap with: Df(4)Δ9M.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Df(4)M101-62f uncovers hybrid sterility when heterozygous in males containing the D.simulans 4th chromosome introgressed into an otherwise D.melanogaster background.

en-/en+ in combination with an unpaired wild type ci+ allele shows a ci phenotype.

Homozygous embryos have disconnected tracheae and the oesophagus and pharynx are abnormal. Midgut constrictions do not form, the hindgut is shorter than normal and Malpighian tubules do not elongate normally.

In a Df(4)M101-62f genetic background the mutant phenotype of P{UAS-ptc.J} expressed from Scer\GAL471B is enhanced, wing veins L3 and L4 are extensively deleted.

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