Atg2EP3697 heterozygous neuromuscular junctions exhibit wild-type bouton levels.
Atg2EP3697/Df(3L)Exel6091 animals analysed at +4 hours relative to puparium formation show a significant delay in midgut histolysis compared to controls. At +12 hours relative to puparium formation, larval midgut contraction is dramatically delayed in the mutants compared to controls.
Atg2EP3697 mutants exhibit neuromuscular junction undergrowth but do not exhibit defects in axonal transport.
Mutants show disruption of autophagy.
