Trxr-1G0481 homozygotes are lethal, pupae are elongated and third instar larvae present no obvious muscle phenotype, as compared to controls.
Homozygotes survive to the third larval instar, with 75% developing into pupae with 1 day of delay. About 20% eclose as normal looking adults, most of which die within 2-3 days of eclosion.
About 75% of hemizygotes dies as normal looking pharate adults or during eclosion. The life span of those flies that do eclose is severely reduced.
