G to A nucleotide change at the second or third position of the Trp codon leads to a nonsense mutation (exact site of mutation unspecified). Site of nucleotide substitution in mutant inferred by FlyBase base on reported amino acid change.
Expressing sxcScer\UAS.cMa under the control of Scer\GAL4tub.PU partially rescues the lethality of sxc1/sxc6 transheterozygotes and although the majority of the surviving adults have normal wings, a significant proportion has wings with an ectopic vein; these surviving females have viable progeny.
Expressing either sxcH537A.Scer\UAS or sxcH596F.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4tub.PU partially rescues the lethality of sxc1/sxc6 transheterozygotes but the majority of the surviving adults has wing defects which consist mostly of ectopic veins; the rest have normal wing morphology; these surviving females have viable progeny.
Expressing sxcD955A.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4tub.PU partially rescue the lethality of sxc1/sxc6 transheterozygotes but the majority of surviving adults show wing defects, including ectopic veins, notches and blistering; the progeny of sxcD955A.Scer\UAS-rescued sxc1/sxc6 females dies before reaching second larval instar (crossed with either sxcD955A.Scer\UAS-rescued sxc1/sxc6 males) or adulthood (crossed with wild-type males) due to maternal effect.
