Stage 15 embryos that express rhoScer\UAS.cUa under the control of Scer\GAL4prd.PU in a hthMeis1-P2 homozygous background neither exhibit the ectopic/increased oenocytes in Prd-positive segments observed upon the expression of rhoScer\UAS.cUa alone nor exhibit the absence of oenocytes observed in hthMeis1-P2 homozygotes, but display a decrease in the number of oenocytes as compared to wild-type controls).
The co-expression of rhoScer\UAS.cUa and abd-AScer\UAS.cGa under the control of Scer\GAL4prd.PU enhances the increased and/or ectopic oenocytes in Prd-positive segments during stage 15 of embryogenesis displayed in either single expression condition.
Expression of rhoScer\UAS.cUa under the control of Scer\GAL4vn.GAL4 partially suppresses the lethality seen in vnL6/vnGAL4 mutant flies. Approximately 50% of flies reach adulthood and have grossly normal wings, although the region between veins L3 and L4 is fused and some extra vein material is observed. The wing disc is of normal size and pattern.
