Df(3R)Tl-I/Df(3R)D605 flies show strongly impaired levels of phagocytosis of gram-positive bacteria compared to wild-type or heterozygous controls. These flies also show an impairment in phagocytosis of gram-negative bacteria, althoughh to a lesser extent.
Df(3R)Tl-I/Df(3R)D605 hemocytes show impaired levels of phagocytosis of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, but show wild-type levels of phagocytosis of india ink carbon particles. These hemocytes appear to adhere less tightly to the larval cuticle than wild-type hemocytes.
After feeding on gram-negative bacteria, Df(3R)Tl-I/Df(3R)D605 flies die more rapidly than wild-type flies. The hemolymph of these flies contains about a 10,000-fold increase in bacterial number compared to wild-type flies.
