The reduced wing disc size characteristic for pcm14 mutant third instar larvae is fully rescued by expression of Dis3l2GD9240 under the control of Scer\GAL469B in the mutant background but the larvae are still developmentally delayed.
The dramatic increase in apoptosis (assessed by Caspase-3 staining) in the third instar larval wing disc characteristic for pcm14 homozygote mutants is strongly suppressed by combination with Df(3L)H99 in heterozygote state, the reduced size of the disc is partially restored and so is its differentiation (the disturbed wg pattern is recovered).
The reduced size of the third larval instar imaginal wing disc characteristic for pcm14 homozygotes is strongly rescued by combination with heterozygous Df(3L)H99 deficiency, homozygous Dark82 allele or by expression of Diap1Scer\UAS.cHa under the control of Scer\GAL469B (using tub-Gal80[ts] to limit the time of expression) in the mutant background. The resulting disc size is intermediate between that of pcm14 alone and that of Df(3L)H99/+ or Dark82/Dark82 or Diap1Scer\UAS.cHa-expressing discs (each of which alone gives rise to wing disc bigger than wild-type) and smaller than wild-type.
The reduced size of third instar larval wing discs characteristic for pcm14 homozygote larvae is fully rescued by expression of pcmScer\UAS.cWa when driven by the Scer\GAL469B and partially rescued when controlled by the Scer\GAL4nub-AC-62 driver.
