Expression of ciJF01715 in C-IV neurons under the control of Scer\GAL4ppk.1.9 results in a reduction in total dendritic length in ddaC, v'ada and vdaB neurons. The total number of dendritic branches is also reduced in ddaC and v'ada neurons.
Expression of ciJF01715 in C-I neurons under the control of Scer\GAL4221 results in ddaD neurons that have an increased number of dendritic branches compared to controls.
ciJF01715 enhances the eye overgrowth phenotype seen when DlScer\UAS.cDa is expressed under the control of Scer\GAL4ey.PH, resulting in flies with secondary eye growths within the thorax and abdomen. The phenotype is seen with 100% penetrance.
