80.3% of Mmp2k00604 pupae show wing eversion defects 6 hours after puparium formation (eversion is complete at this time in wild-type animals); 45.5% have partially everted wings and 34.8% show a complete failure of disc eversion. 15.5% have leg eversion defects.
The basement membrane of wing discs is not degraded in Mmp2k00604 pupae which fail to evert their wing discs.
Neuromuscular abnormalities are not observed in mutant larvae.
Lethality occurs during third instar larval or pupal stages. Mutants do not show any visible disc abnormalities.
