This deletion removes multiple ribosomal protein-coding genes (in addition to other genes).
Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.
Does not cause unconditional lethality in hybrid females when heterozygous with D.simulans chromosome.
Deficient embryos show an uninterpretable mutant midgut phenotype.
Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.
Hemizygous embryos were examined with polarised light microscopy and antibody staining: muscle pattern incomplete due to muscle absences and detachments.
