AG to TG mutation in the splice acceptor before the third coding exon.
Vps20I3 contains a splice acceptor mutation leading to a truncation, removing 151 residues from the C-terminus.
eye | somatic clone
Homozygous Vps20I3 mutant tissue partially survives in mosaic eye discs, and is not completely 'out-competed'. Although mutant ommatidia are not recovered, the wild-type ommatidia composing the adult eyes of mosaic animals are variably overgrown.
Vps20[+]/Vps20I3 is a suppressor | partially of increased mortality during development phenotype of Vps609.2
Vps20[+]/Vps20I3, Vps609.2 has lethal - all die before end of P-stage phenotype
Vps20I3 is a suppressor of wing vein L5 phenotype of rhove-1
Vps20I3 is a suppressor of wing vein L5 phenotype of Df(3L)ru-22/rhove-1
A Vps20I3 heterozygous background leads to approximately 90% suppression of the L5 wing vein defect in rhove-1/Df(3L)ru-22 kst1 flies.
