Abstract

Mutations in three loci influencing the development of bristles and hairs were detected in experiments with strains containing either a mobilized Stalker or a mobilized P-element. The mutations in two genes, suppressor of scute and putative microchaete, modify phenotypic expression of mutations in the scute locus. In particular, su(sc) mutations suppress the sc-phenotype in the scutellum and enhance the Hw-phenotype in the thorax. Mutations in the third gene, pseudoscute, lead to reduction of all bristles and hairs. The latter locus seems to control the development of bristles independently of the achaete-scute complex control.
