APP-BP1Ex62 has a 2789bp deletion including 31bp of the fourth exon and the deleted region is from 11090085 to 11092873.
The loss of anterior scutellar macrochaetae that is seen in Appld flies is partially suppressed by APP-BP1Ex62/+. The loss of posterior scutellar macrochaetae that is seen in Appld flies is not suppressed by APP-BP1Ex62/+.
Expression of one copy of ApplScer\UAS.cTa under the control of Scer\GAL4ap-md544 in a APP-BP1Ex62/+ background results in loss of thoracic microchaetae and a reduction in scutellum size. This phenotype is more severe at 29[o]C than at 25[o]C.
