lethal - all die before end of pupal stage | recessive
short lived | recessive
some die during pupal stage | recessive
Nc mutants usually die during pupal stages, but adult escapers are recovered at a low frequency. These escapers have an abnormal wing phenotype, a weak rough eye phenotype and have a short life span, dying 2-3 days after eclosion.
Pupae expressing decayGD8484 under the control of Scer\GAL4NP1 in a IceΔ1 Ncunspecified background undergo midgut histolysis at a similar rate as wild-type animals.
