RpS6WG1288/RpS6WG1288 embryonic macrophages do not show any changes in the phagocytic index (apoptotic cells clearance) compared to wild-type.
The prothoracic gland is 35% smaller than normal in heterozygous third instar larvae.
Heterozygotes show a delay in eclosion of up to 18 hours compared to wild type. This delay is reduced by the addition of 20-hydroxyecdysone.
Hemizygous males are developmentally delayed at all stages. Lethality generally occurs during extended third instar period when melanotic tumours arise.
Melanotic tumour phenotype similar to that of RpS6air8.
