Comments on Cytology

The left Df(3R)ry615 breakpoint lies within desat1 (FBgn0086687) in the range 3R:8269381..8272656 (R5) (predicted cytology: 87B10-87B11).

The right Df(3R)ry615 breakpoint lies within mthl12 or CG8790 or in the region between them, and lies in the range 3R:9181043..9190877 (R5) (predicted cytology: 87E7-87E8).

Does not suppress variegation of the w gene seen in In(1)wm4 animals.

NOT in combination with other aberrations

When P{P-Sal}Pak3P-Sal is present, the w gene of the P{lacW}Dplac insertion variegates, resulting (in a w- background) in an eye that is mostly white with a few patches of red ommatidia. This P-element-dependent silencing of P{lacW}Dplac is dominantly suppressed by Df(3R)ry615.

The Df(3R)ry615 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(3R)ry615 results in 0.9% X chromosome nondisjunction and 0.6% fourth chromosome nondisjunction in In(1)FM7/X ; svspa-pol females.

Homozygous embryos show a "blimp" phenotype (when the embryos are mechanically devitellinised the resulting cuticle preparations stretch to a greater extent than wild-type cuticles).

Heterozygotes show a quantitative effect on wing shape in intervein region C compared to wild type.

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.

Shows no maternal enhancement of dpphr4.

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

Deficient embryos show an uninterpretable mutant midgut phenotype.

Mutation does not affect the level of w expression in ph-plac+3 flies.

Homozygous embryos are very abnormal compared to wild-type.

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

'Sloppy' ventral cord.
