Detailed Description
Statement
Reference

One copy of Su(var)208unspecified strongly suppresses position effect variegation (PEV) at the w locus caused by In(1)wm4.

The copy of Su(var)208unspecified is unable to suppress the telomeric position effect (TPE) in stocks carrying a variegating P{hsp26-pt-T}39C-5 insertion at the telomere of the left arm of chromosome two.

Suppresses the position effect variegation at the w locus caused by In(1)wm4 and suppresses the position effect variegation at the bw locus caused by Byron. Also suppresses the position effect variegation of w seen in the P{wAR}41A insertion.

Strong enhancer of variegation at the lt locus. Also enhances variegation at the l(2)40Fa, l(2)40Fc, cta and l(2)40Ff loci.

Su(var)205unspecified shows semi-lethality with Su(var)208unspecified in females with a Y chromosome.

Eye pigmentation in lt11/lt1 flies is reduced if the flies are also carrying E(Pc)unspecified/Su(var)208unspecified, Su(var)208unspecified/Su(var)2051, Su(var)208unspecified/Su(var)2-11 or Su(var)2-1v9/Su(var)208unspecified. Eye pigmentation in lt11/+ flies that are also carrying E(Pc)unspecified/Su(var)208unspecified or Su(var)2-1v9/Su(var)208unspecified is reduced. Pigmentation is restored to wild-type levels in these flies by Dp(2;Y)G. lt11/lt1; Su(var)208unspecified/Su(var)2051 flies have reduced viability. Viability is restored in XO males. Eye pigmentation and viability is reduced in lt11/+ flies that are also carrying Su(var)208unspecified and E(ltv)319319 or Su(var)208unspecified and E(ltv)335335.
