Dear Michael,
I remain extremely certain that tric is beat. This is based on
indistinguishable Bolwig Organ defects in our tric allele and Corey's beat
alleles. Our allele does not affect the motoneurons, however, so
reciprocity is not maintained. UAS-beat directed to the Bolwig Organs or
optic lobes rescues the BO phenotype of tric and beat mutants. Reduction
of Fas II expression rescues the BO phenotype too, just as it does in the
motoneurons. tric and beat alleles fail to complement when Bolwig Organ
phenotype is assessed. So, by those criteria they look pretty much the same. We
sequenced the coding region of beat from our tric allele and found no
mutations. Corey's group did not sequence their beat alleles. So, by
most people's standards I think tric=beat and we do conclude
that tric and beat are the same in a MS that we have submitted.
Regards,
Joe
