Almost 20% of hub cells in shvc00496/shvc00496 testes (around 15% in shvc00496/shv1) appear 'pulled' and frequently do not localize at the apical tip, compared to no 'pulled' cells in controls. shvc00496/shvc00496 or shvc00496/shv1 testes of 3 day old flies have significantly fewer GSCs compared to controls.
