Homozygous clones in the fifth adult abdominal segment show transformation to a more anterior identity, as shown by the loss of the black pigmentation characteristic of this segment. The effect is cell autonomous.
brm2 shows little if any interaction in double heterozygous combination with kis2; less than 3% of flies have held-out wings.
No effect on the eye pigment phenotype of wT81.
Pairing sensitive repression is unchanged in iab-7 PRE lines that carry kis2.
Mutation changes the level of w expression in ph-plac+3 flies; eye colour is lighter.
