The expression of TER94UAS.cHa under the control of Scer\GAL4elav.PLu does not lead to significant locomotive dysfunction in third instar larvae and adults, or obvious eye defects, as compared to controls.
Flies expressing one copy of TER94Scer\UAS.cHa under the control of Scer\GAL4GMR.PS have a mild eye ablation phenotype, with a slight loss of red pigmentation, irregular ommatidial packing and missing interommatidial bristles.
Flies expressing two copies of TER94Scer\UAS.cHa under the control of Scer\GAL4GMR.PS show considerable eye degeneration and have very small eyes. The external surface of the eye is glassy and less pigmented than normal.
Late pupal heads expressing TER94Scer\UAS.cHa under the control of Scer\GAL4GMR.PS show massive apoptotic cell death in the compound eye cells.
