P741T | Med-PA; P667T | Med-PB; P741T | Med-PC
Site of nucleic acid difference in mutant inferred by FlyBase based on reported amino acid change.
Amino acid replacement: P715T.
Homozygous adults do not have any obvious phenotypic abnormalities. 98% of embryos derived from homozygous females hatch.
Med17/Med[+] is a suppressor of locomotor behavior defective | adult stage phenotype of Scgδ840
Med17, dpphr4/dpp[+] has lethal | maternal effect phenotype
Med17, zen1 has lethal | recessive | embryonic stage phenotype
Med17/Med[+] is an enhancer of phenotype of dpphr4
Med17, zen1 has embryonic/first instar larval cuticle phenotype
Animals derived from homozygous Med17 females mated to dpphr4/+ males show strong lethality (less than 5% of the expected number survive).
The severe loss of climbing ability in a negative geotaxis assay which is seen in Scgδ840 mutants is suppressed if the flies are also carrying Med17/+.
