The expression of MadSDVD.UAS
under the control of Scer\GAL4Mef2.PR
does not have an obvious effect on the amplitude of excitatory junctional currents (eEJCs) at the larval neuromuscular junction, as compared to controls.
The expression of SmoxSDVD.Scer\UAS
under the control of Scer\GAL4nub.PU
leads to the adult wing showing a significant increase in size, associated with a severe increase in cell number and with a significant decrease in cell size, as compared to controls;
Expression of SmoxSDVD.Scer\UAS
also leads to significant increases of the adult leg size (Scer\GAL4Dll-md23
-driven expression) and of the salivary gland nucleus size (Scer\GAL4AB1
-driven expression), as compared to controls.
Expression of two copies of SmoxSDVD.Scer\UAS
, under the control of Scer\GAL4A9
, increases average wing growth to 135%, without causing major pattern defects.
