Expression of trblScer\UAS.T:Zzzz\FLAG suppresses the increase in trichome density seen in the wings of flies expressing PtenJF01859 under the control of Scer\GAL4e16A. The resulting flies exhibit a significant decrease in trichome density compared with controls, as is seen in trblScer\UAS.T:Zzzz\FLAG alone.
rok2 clones generated in PtenJF01859-expressing tissue suppresses the effect of the expression of PtenJF01859 under the control of Scer\GAL80ts.αTub84B and Scer\GAL4en.PU on cell packing, namely the excess of short junctions. Despite a slightly higher proportion of non-rearranging junctions (1.15-fold), the rearranging junctions neither produce an excess of short junctions nor fluctuate extensively, but lengthen to produce long cell junctions as observed in wild-type tissue. Furthermore, the packing and cell rearrangement dynamics in the double mutant tissue is similar to the one observed in rok2 single mutant tissue.
