Adult midgut intestinal stem cell somatic MARCM clones homozygous for pnt07825Δ78
do not display any growth defects. The rate of mitosis upon infection with Pseudomonas entomophila in the mosaic midgut is comparable to controls.
Eggs derived from egg chambers containing complete homozygous follicle cell clones have a single thick dorsal appendages.
homozygous clones in the dorsal air sac primordium grow and normally but never contribute to the tip of the primordium.
In somatic clones mutant for pnt05484Δ33
in third instar eye discs, some R2-5 photoreceptors undergo G1 arrest, but none differentiate.
Homozygous embryos show a loss of 3 chordotonal organs per abdominal hemisegment (VChA and two in LCh5).
Eggs laid by mosaic females (generated using Scer\FRT
recombination system) that have a clone of mutant follicle cells in the dorsal-anterior region or a clone that covers the entire follicle cell layer exhibit a single broad dorsal appendage 4 times wider than a wild type appendage. This is not a fusion of the two appendages but cells from the middle region taking on an appendage-producing cell fate.
Clones in the eye are missing photoreceptors.
