The dpp shortvein phenotype is strongly enhanced, and the tkv phenotype is suppressed, in dpps4 tkv1/dpps8 tkv8 double mutant flies. The rhohs.PSt and Ras64BAct5C.PC ectopic vein phenotypes are suppressed in combination with dpps4/dpps8. dpps4/dpps8 NAx-1 double mutant flies show pronounced wing vein loss. The dpp loss of vein phenotype is epistatic in dpps4/dpps8 Nnd-3 double mutants, and the vein thickening characteristic of Nnd-3 is eliminated.
The wings of dppScer\UAS.cSa; Scer\GAL4dpp.3KK flies are covered in ectopic vein tissue. This phenotype is rescued by dpps22/dpps4. The resulting flies have a milder shortvein phenotype than dpps22/dpps4 flies.
Belongs to the shv-lnc class alleles. Fails to fully complement disk region mutants.
