Site of nucleotide substitution in mutant inferred by FlyBase based on reported amino acid change.
ksr::torΔNksr.hs.sev/alphS-355 mutants exhibit a 20% loss of ommatidial R7 cells, indicating that alphS-355 has suppressed the ksr::torΔNksr.hs.sev phenotype. This effect is not specific to the R7 cells as the loss of outer photoreceptors is suppressed in this double mutant.
phylhs.sev heterozygous mutants in combination with alphS-355 exhibit a rough eye phenotype. They exhibit an average of 1.70 R7 cells per ommatidium, compared to 1 R7 cell per ommatidium in wild-type. This however is no higher than in phylhs.sev heterozygous mutants.
