Df(3R)nm136/Df(3R)BSC524 does not result in embryonic VNC defects or embryonic lethality.
Inferred to overlap with: Df(3R)BSC524.
Df(3R)nm136 animals (in which the second-site neurnm136 mutation has been removed), display larval lethality with no embryonic VNC defects. Larval lethality is not rescued by His2AvT:Avic\GFP-S65T.
Separable from: neurnm136.
The nervous system defects and embryonic lethality observed in Df(3R)nm136 embryos are not due to absence of SPARC, but rather due to neurnm136, a second-site mutation on the chromosome.
