Genetic mapping information

This deletion removes a single ribosomal protein-coding gene (though other genes are also removed).

    In combination with other aberrations

    Df(2L)M36F-S6 is semi-lethal in combination with either Df(2L)H20 or Df(2L)cact-255rv64. Surviving males and females are fertile.

    Df(2L)MN-6 is semi-lethal in combination with Df(2L)M36F-S6.

    Df(2L)T317/Df(2L)M36F-S6 animals are viable and fertile.

    Inferred to overlap with: Df(2L)H20.

    Df(2L)TW203/Df(2L)M36F-S6 embryos show disorganisation of the peripheral nervous system. Dorsal bipolar neurons can not be seen.

    NOT in combination with other aberrations

    Flies heterozygous for the deletion show a Minute bristle phenotype.

    Heterozygotes have a reduced number of sensilla trichodea on the antenna compared to wild-type flies.

    Homozygous embryos show disorganisation of the peripheral nervous system. Dorsal bipolar neurons can not be seen.

    Dominantly causes tergite defects in less than 50% of run3 heterozygotes.

    Minute phenotype is not suppressed by RpL32+t3.3.

    Other Comments

    Df(2L)M36F-2 and Df(2L)M36F-S6 show the same genetic characteristics, raising the possibility that they might trace back to the same stock.
