hypomorphic allele - molecular evidence
Insertion of a 412 element 4bp upstream of the Pol32 translation start codon.
female fertile (with PolD3rd-4)
majority die during embryonic stage | rescuable maternal effect (with PolD3R2)
majority die during embryonic stage | rescuable maternal effect (with PolD3rd-1)
abdomen | female
chaeta (with PolD3R2)
More bristles reduced and remaining ones more irregular than in rd1. More extreme in male. Abdominal banding abnormal in female. RK1.
