A set of isogenic deficiency stocks created by FLP-induced recombination between FRT-carrying transgenic insertions; molecularly defined deletion endpoints correspond to initial location of the progenitor insertions. Initial core set of 209 isogenic deletions provides ~60% euchromatic genome coverage.
This deletion removes a single ribosomal protein-coding gene (though other genes are also removed).
Heterozygous Df(3R)ED5454 mutant females exhibit a dilated cardiomyopathy phenotype, including an increased end-systolic dimension (EDD) and a decreased fractional shortening (FS) compared to controls. Bristles appear short and thin compared to wild type (Minute phenotype).
Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.
