Genetic mapping information

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

Breakpoint(s) molecularly mapped

Comments on Cytology

The left Df(2R)vg-C breakpoint lies within CG8569, fra or CG30056 or in the region between CG8569 and CG30056, and lies in the range 2R:8408228..8449635 (R5) (predicted cytology: 49A10-B3).

The right Df(2R)vg-C breakpoint lies within Mdr49 or CG3884 or in the region between Mdr49 and CG3884, and lies in the range 2R:8827958..8836560 (R5) (predicted cytology: 49E1-4).

Uncovers the proximal, but not the distal, breakpoint of the In(2R)Arp1 inversion.

Left limit of break 1 from polytene analysis (FBrf0036848) Right limit of break 1 from inclusion of stil (FBrf0089756) Left limit of break 2 from polytene analysis (FBrf0082794) Right limit of break 2 from non-inclusion of Psc (FBrf0043317)

No effect on In(1)wm4h position-effect variegation.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

Flies heterozygous for the deletion do not show a Minute bristle phenotype.

The Df(2R)vg-C chromosome does not act as a dominant suppressor of telomeric silencing (assayed using the effect of the chromosome on the eye colour phenotype of flies carrying "P{wvar}KR3-2", a stable "brown-red" variant of the P{3'WP-2,wvar}2Lt insertion).

Df(2R)vg-C/Df(2R)vg-C embryos exhibit thinner central nervous system commissures and extensive breaks in the axonal longitudinal tracts.

Does not cause unconditional lethality in hybrid females when heterozygous with D.simulans chromosome.

Weak second site non-complementing phenotype with zipEbr and zipmhc-c6.1 : malformed phenotype penetrance 10-24%.

Shows no maternal enhancement of dpphr4.

Enhances the phenotype of dominant ovo alleles.

Complementation tests with E(Egfr)B56B56 reveal defects in wing vein L2, L4 and L5.

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

Heterozygotes with rdgE1 exhibit absence of a deep pseudopupil after 7 days in constant light.

Heterozygosity for this deletion enhances the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.

Does not exhibit dominant flightlessness.
