There is no detectable alteration in the restriction enzyme profile compared to wild-type.
eye color defective
touch response defective
visible | recessive
w118 mutant larvae are less responsive to gentle touch.
w118 flies exhibit increased survival time compared to wild-type.
Eye colour: white.
w118 is a suppressor of touch response defective phenotype of SmnE33
w118 is a non-suppressor of locomotor behavior defective phenotype of SmnE33
The mechanosensory phenotype seen in SmnE33 larvae is rescued by crossing with w118, but crawling speed is not restored to wild-type or SmnE33/+ levels.
