Co-expression of aseScer\UAS.cBa largely suppresses the production of ectopic intermediate neural progenitor-like cells seen in the type I neuroblasts of the ventral brain and ventral nerve cord when pntScer\UAS.P1.cZa is expressed under the control of Scer\GAL4insc-Mz1407.
Expression of aseScer\UAS.cBa under the control of Scer\GAL4hs.PB suppresses the mechanosensory bristle defects found in scase-1 mutants. The number of defective bristles in scase-1 flies is reduced from an average of 9.7 to 2.5 bristles per fly.
Co-expression of aseScer\UAS.cBa and nvyScer\UAS.cWa, both under the control of Scer\GAL4pnr-MD237, leads to a phenotype that is an intermediate of the two phenotypes seen when each is expressed separately. Resulting larvae have few sensory organ precursors in the wing disc and adults have some bristles on the thorax.
