Genetic mapping information

This deletion removes multiple ribosomal protein-coding genes (in addition to other genes).

Comments on Cytology

The left Df(2L)N22-14 breakpoint lies in CG13386 or CG31898 or in the region between them, and lies in the range 2L:8399332..8401129 (R5) (predicted cytology: 29C1).

The right Df(2L)N22-14 breakpoint lies within CG13123 or nAcRα-30D or the region between them, and lies in the range 2L:9792596..9806483 (R5) (predicted cytology: 30D1).

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Flies heterozygous for the deletion do not show a Minute bristle phenotype.

Little if any macrophage migration occurs in homozygous embryos, with most macrophages remaining in the anterior region, clustered around the foregut, at stage 13-15.

Heterozygosity for Df(2L)N22-14 results in 1.5% X chromosome nondisjunction and 0.0% fourth chromosome nondisjunction in In(1)FM7/X ; svspa-pol females.

Heterozygotes show a quantitative effect on wing shape in intervein region C compared to wild type.

Does not cause unconditional lethality in hybrid females when heterozygous with D.simulans chromosome.

Other Comments

The Df(2L)N22-14 chromosome acts as a dominant weak 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 this is assumed to be a false positive result (the suppressor may not be within the bounds of the deficient region) because the 2L TAS array on the chromosome is reduced (as assayed by in situ hybridization) and it has previously been shown (FBrf0137248, FBrf0158986) that partial or complete deficiency of the 2L TAS array on the homologue suppresses silencing of brown-red variants of P{3'WP-2,wvar}2Lt.
