cic4/cicQ474X adults exhibit wing defects including reduced wing size and ectopic wing vein material in the wings.
Embryos produced by cic1/cicQ474X females exhibit severe defects including loss of thoracic and abdominal regions.
Homozygous clones in the eye result in over-representation of mutant tissue over wild-type tissue in the eye. Eyes containing homozygous clones consistently contain more ommatidia than normal and are thus slightly larger than normal. Mutant ommatidia in the adult retina are indistinguishable from wild-type in terms of the size, number and arrangement of photoreceptor cells.
Mutant cells from mosaic wing discs of early third instar larvae have a similar DNA content profile and cell size as wild-type cells when analysed by flow cytometry. The mutant clones occupy a larger area of the larval wings disc and typically contain more cells than their wild-type twin spots.
