abnormal mitotic cell cycle
abnormal size | larval stage
decreased occurrence of cell division | larval stage
lethal - all die before end of larval stage | recessive
some die during larval stage | recessive

mitosis & nuclear chromosome
mitotic cell cycle
Imaginal discs of homozygous larvae are missing or degenerate. Defects in the cell cycle: few or no dividing cells and affects chromosome condensation.
Imaginal discs are missing. Mitotic chromosomes are swollen and fuzzy. Low mitotic index.
