UAS regulatory sequences drive expression of tsh lacking zinc finger 2. Amino acids 1-467 are fused to amino acids 491-954.
antennal disc, with Scer\GAL4dpp.PS
eye | ectopic, with Scer\GAL4dpp.PS
Expression of tshΔZn2.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4dpp.PS induces ectopic eyes in 1% of antennal discs. The ectopic eyes produced are smaller than those seen when a full length tsh construct, tshScer\UAS.cDa, is expressed.
Cell proliferation appears normal in antennal disc clones expressing tshΔZn2.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4Scer\FRT.Act5C.
