P-element mediated male recombination using P{EP}meltEP31685 has deleted 22Kb of genomic sequence, starting at the P{EP}meltEP31685 insertion site and removing the coding regions of melt and CG32390 and part of the coding region of corn.

Df(3L)melt-Δ1 eyes show a loss of pR8 cells and an expansion of yR8 cells.

Df(3L)melt-Δ1 R7 photoreceptor cell clones do not affect the fate of R8 photoreceptor cells.

Flies homozygous Df(3L)meltΔ1 are semiviable (70% viable to adult) and fertile. These flies are about 10% smaller than control flies and have only about 60% of the triglyceride levels per unit body weight that controls do. Diacylglyceride levels in the hemolymph are also reduced in these animals. Wandering third instar larvae have about 20% less triglyceride levels per unit body weight than controls.
