dacP heterozygotes do not exhibit any size alterations or roughness in eyes when compared to control adults.
Homozygous adults have a mild mushroom body phenotype. The eyes are consistently (but less severely than ey2) reduced in size.
Eyes of homozygotes are reduced and roughened. 50% of ommatidia have either too many or too few photoreceptors, and the ommatidial array is disrupted. Morphogenetic furrow movement is uneven, resulting in a curved furrow that has advanced further at midline than at the periphery of the disc. While legs have normal proximal and distal morphology, femur, tibia and proximal three tarsi are fused and condensed.
