Adults expressing TrlGD8028 under the control of the cardioblast-specific Scer\GAL4tin.CΔ4 driver show significantly reduced survival on day 6 after a shift to 29[o]C compared to control flies.
Adults expressing TrlGD8028 under the control of Scer\GAL4HCH.Hand show a significant increase in both diastolic and systolic diameters, and a significant decrease in fractional shortening compared to controls. Heart period is not significantly different from controls.
Adults expressing TrlGD8028 under the control of Scer\GAL4elav.PLu (in the presence of Dcr-2Scer\UAS.cDa to increase the efficiency of RNAi) do not show a significant defect in avoidance of noxious temperature (46[o]C) compared to control flies.
Expression under the control of Scer\GAL4Mef2.PR results in adult/pharate lethality.
