Detailed Description
Statement
Reference

8% of homozygous males have aberrant terminalia; some of them appear to lack external genitalia, which remain inside the abdominal cuticle. Homozygotes have unpigmented aristae. The genital disc is malformed in ken1/kenok mutant males and some discs are split into two subdivisions.

Additional Comments
Genetic Interactions
Statement
Reference

cadmd509 markedly increases the frequency of terminal defects in kenok homozygous adults; the frequency of male terminal defects is 8% in kenok homozygotes, 30% if they are also heterozygous for cadmd509 and 87% if they are also homozygous for cadmd509. The frequency of terminal defects in kenok homozygous adults is increased by tlll49/+. increased by dppd5/+.

Etymology: mutant is named "okina" (which in Japanese means a respectable old man with a white beard) since the aristae of mutant flies are unpigmented. Excision of the P-element can revert the mutant phenotype.
