stanfrz3 flies show planar cell polarity defects in the eyes, wings and thorax.
Many stanfrz3 ommatidia mis-rotate; the variance (s.d.) in degree of rotation is greater than in wild type in adult eyes.
Homozygotes show defects in ommatidial polarity.
Homozygotes exhibit a range of polarity defects in the eye. 13.9% of ommatidia show polarity defects.
