Homozygous flies are more sensitive to Cricket Paralysis virus infection (after being injected with the virus) than control flies.
PGRP-LCunspecified mutant adults phagocytose both E.coli and S.areus normally.
Mutant larvae show normal melanisation at a wound site in response to infection and do not have melanotic tumours.
Selected as: a mutation that fails to induce expression of Ecol\lacZDpt.PR normally in response to infection.
