    Zeste eye colour in heterozygous combination with Tp(1;2)TE35BC in a z1 w11E4 background. Red eye colour in heterozygous combination with Tp(1;2)TE34Cc or Tp(1;3)TE89Da in a z1 w11E4 background. Viable when hemizygous with noc- deletions.

    NOT in combination with other aberrations

    Homozygous viable. Zeste eye colour when heterozygous or homozygous in a z1 w11E4 background.

    Homozygous viable. Heterozygous males have an almost wild-type eye colour, but the eyes of heterozygous females are less red, with a purple tint.

    Eye color on a w- background genotype: red; suppressed by z1 homozygous viable

    Contains a tandem repeat of the w+ and rst+ genes bounded by FB elements. There are also NOF sequences within the TE. Both copies of rst appear to have a NEB element inserted at a similar site. The copies of w probably carry a small (approximately 250bp) insertion, which is probably a copia LTR. The junctions between FB and non-FB sequences within Tp(1;2)TE35B have been molecularly mapped.

    Carries duplicate copies of w+ and rst+. This rearrangement is associated with four FB elements, one of which also includes NOF sequences.

    Carries two copies of w+ and rst+ in tandem (distal-proximal order: w+ rst+ w+ rst+).

    Carries a duplication of both the w and rst genes.
