Induction of VhaSFDEY04644 homozygous whole-eye clones in the third instar larva leads to the absence of eyes in adults.
Predominantly mutant VhaSFDEY04644 eye discs (generated using Scer\FLP1ey.PN) are small in size compared to wild type and have aberrant morphology.
VhaSFD[EY04644] eye disc cells show an increased number of multivesicular bodies (MVBs) compared to wild type. These MVBs are enlarged and contain a high number of luminal vesicles.
A portion of the cells in VhaSFDEY04644 mosaic clones are eliminated from the disc, especially when surrounded by wild type cells.
