The expression of StricaGD12308 under the control of Scer\GAL4ap-md544 and Dicer-2 (for a more efficient RNAi) leads to curled wings, indicative of growth inhibition during development. Expression under the control of Scer\GAL4ap-md544 alone does not induce major wing defects.
does not lead to wing defects (i.e. curly or opaque wings).
Adults expressing StricaGD12308 under the control of Scer\GAL4elav.PLu (in the presence of Dcr-2Scer\UAS.cDa to increase the efficiency of RNAi) do not show a significant defect in avoidance of noxious temperature (46[o]C) compared to control flies.
