    The salivary gland distal tip does not initiate turning and migration in embryos homozygous for Df(3L)Ar14-8 by stage 14.

    Df(3L)Ar14-8 embryos show defects in tracheal invagination.

    Has no effect on the ommatidial polarity phenotype of msnEP549 when driven by Scer\GAL4hs.2sev.

    Dominant suppressor of dshhs.sev.B mutant polarity phenotype.

    Dominantly suppresses the KrIf-1/+ eye phenotype.

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

    Deficient embryos show an uninterpretable mutant midgut phenotype.

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

    The Df(3L)Ar14-8 chromosome may 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), but the eye colour phenotype in the presence of Df(3L)Ar14-8 overlaps the eye colour phenotype in a wild-type background so it cannot be unequivocally demonstrated that the deficiency chromosome uncovers a suppressor of telomeric silencing.
