A set of isogenic deficiency stocks created by FLP-induced recombination between FRT-carrying transgenic insertions; molecularly defined deletion endpoints correspond to initial location of the progenitor insertions. Initial core set of 209 isogenic deletions provides ~60% euchromatic genome coverage.
This deletion removes multiple ribosomal protein-coding genes (in addition to other genes).
No cardiac or bristle phenotypes are observed in heterozygous Df(3L)ED4470 mutant females.
Homozygous stage 16 embryos have elongated and convoluted tracheal dorsal trunks. The embryos also show defects in paracellular diffusion barrier function.
Flies heterozygous for the deletion do not show a Minute bristle phenotype.
