Genetic mapping information

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

Comments on Cytology

The left Df(3L)R-G7 breakpoint lies within R or CG12025 or in the region between them, and lies in the range 3L:1861374..1865717 (R5) (predicted cytology: 62B7).

The right Df(3L)R-G7 breakpoint lies within CG32295 or msn or in the region between them, and lies in the range 3L:2526381..2557148 (R5) (predicted cytology: 62E5-62E6) based on the following evidence.

Left limit of break 1 from polytene analysis (FBrf0098597) Right limit of break 1 from polytene analysis (FBrf0049893) Limits of break 2 from polytene analysis (FBrf0098597)

In combination with other aberrations

Lethal in combination with Df(3L)BSC116. Inferred to overlap with: Df(3L)BSC116.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

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

Df(3L)R-G7 embryos show defects in tracheal cell migration.

The Df(3L)R-G7 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).

Heterozygosity for Df(3L)R-G7 results in 1.9% X chromosome nondisjunction and 1.2% fourth chromosome nondisjunction in In(1)FM7/X ; svspa-pol females.

Dominantly enhances the KrIf-1/+ eye phenotype.

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

No second site non-complementing phenotype with zipEbr and zipmhc-c6.1.

Deficient embryos show an uninterpretable mutant midgut phenotype.

Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.

Other Comments

"62B9;62E7" was stated as revision.

Used in D.melanogaster/D.simulans hybrids to map at least four non-overlapping regions on the D.simulans 3R that have effects on the species difference of cuticular hydrocarbon profile.

Distal breakpoints of Df(3L)R-E and Df(3L)R-G7 are not distinguishable cytogenetically.
