Homozygous germline clones result in degeneration of the ovary prior to vitellogenic stages.
Single cell class IV dendrite arborisation (da) neuron clones that are homozygous for Su(z)124 show a range of dendritic defects in the third instar larva. Homozygous class IV ddaC clones show a significant reduction in dendrite branching and total dendritic length compared to controls.
Heterozygous larvae show no significant defects in dendrite morphology of class IV dendrite arborisation (da) neurons.
Eggs are not recovered from females carrying homozygous germ-line clones.
