Detailed Description
Statement
Reference

A large fraction of homozygotes are arrhythmic with respect to locomotor activity when kept in constant darkness at 24oC, and the average signal-to-noise ratio is lower than wild-type. The rhythmicity is not affected by temperature. Homozygotes sometimes show abnormal synchronisation to light-dark cycles. The eclosion rhythm is normal.

Body colour: black.

Ability to incorporate beta-alanine-derived C intermediate between that of e1 and wild type.

Classifiable from hatching throughout larval period by dark color of spiracle sheaths, although darkening is less than in e1, e4, or e11.

RK1. Body colour: darker than wild-type but lighter than e1.
