Forced expression of dppScer\UAS.cUa
driven by Scer\GAL4ey.PU
appears to initiate ectopic eye formation at the anterior margin of the eye field. Often the result is the production of two compound eyes being generated from a single retinal field.
63-day old germaria expressing dppScer\UAS.cUa
(with expression controlled via 'UAS-gal80[ts]' and temperature) have significantly fewer germline cell stems and cap cells compared to controls.
