loss of function allele
Single site mutation.
lethal - all die before end of pupal stage | recessive
some die during pupal stage | recessive
visible | dominant
A partial phenotypic revertant of R1. The rough eyed phenotype of RrevG8/+ flies is less severe than in R1/+ flies and does not overlap either wildtype or R1/+.
The mutational event generating the RrevG8 chromosome is also associated with a recessive lethal effect. The RrevG8 chromosome is completely lethal over Df(3L)R-E.
