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
imaginal disc | larval stage
Imaginal discs of homozygous larvae are missing or degenerate. Defects in the cell cycle: few or no dividing cells and affects chromosome condensation.
L3 larval lethal discs missing low mitotic index; condensation of mitotic chromosomes irregular
