Insertion of an 8kb 412 in intron 3 and an insertion of 6kb of unknown DNA at the 3' end of intron 2.
412 element insert.
412 insertion (8 kb) at + 8kb; '+' values to right (distal); 0 coordinate assigned to insert position of vg21; Williams, Atkin and Bell (1990).
Heterozygotes show a cut wing phenotype in combination with mutants in the 'Nipped' genes. Has no effect on the eye phenotype of Nspl-1.
Cell death is also abundant in l(2)gd11 vg1 and ft8 vg1 wing imaginal discs. Pharate adult wings of l(2)gd11 vg1, l(2)gd13 vg1 and ft8 vg1 double mutants are partially restored compared to the single homozygotes. At a high growth temperature, 29oC, wings of homozygotes and l(2)gd11 vg1 double mutants are more normal due to improved cell viability.
