loss of function allele
female sterile | recessive
oocyte | oogenesis stage S6
ovoe7E aborts oogenesis beginning at stage 6. ovoe7E/ovoD1rv23 mutants have egg chambers arrested in pre-vitellogenic stages.
Phenotypic category: svb+ ovo-.
SxlM1, ovoM2/ovoe7E has female fertile phenotype
SxlM1, ovoM2/ovoe7E has female semi-sterile phenotype
The partial sterility of ovoM2/ovoe7E females is rescued if they are also carrying SxlM1.
