expression in somatic clones induces an increase in tissue and organ size, leading, for example, to oversized halteres, or to an overgrowth of imaginal discs. Photoreceptor differentiation in the third instar larval eye imaginal disc is unaffected by hpodsRNA.Scer\UAS
induction, however, third instar eye imaginal discs containing large flp-out hpodsRNA.Scer\UAS
clones are enlarged compared to wild-type. Cells in larval eye imaginal disc hpodsRNA.Scer\UAS
clones fail to arrest in the morphogenetic furrow and, after the second mitotic wave, undergo additional rounds of division.
