Statement
Reference
Sequence encoding a GAL4 driver has been inserted immediately after the translational start codon of dsx in exon 2, which is common to male and female dsx mRNAs. This GAL4 coding sequence is terminated by a single stop codon. The two codons 3' of the GAL4 stop codon encode different amino acids than those normally found in dsx proteins, but otherwise the dsx sequences both 5' and 3' of the GAL4 insertion site are unaltered in the targeted chromosome. This allele is anticipated, barring internal re-initiation of translation, to be a null dsx allele.

Detailed Description
Statement
Reference
dsx15/dsxGAL4 mutant adult males have ectopic formation of usually female-specific pMN2 neurons; pMN2 neurons are still present in females of this genotype as normal.
dsxGAL4 produces classical dsx mutant morphological phenotypes when heterozygous with the null alleles dsx1 or In(3LR)dsx34. dsxGAL4 caused reduced fertility in both sexes.
