Expression of elg1HMC03187
RNAi under the control of the triple Scer\GAL4nos.PG
driver results in nurse cell endoreplication defects and underreplicated phenotype. Unlike controls, ovaries from elg1HMC03187
RNAi expressing females lack cells with ploidy levels of 128C-1024C, from the ploidy levels that surpass those found also in somatic cells they display a peak only at 64C and the stage 14 egg chambers lack dorsal appendages.
