Expression of ciJF01272 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 ciJF01272 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.
Expression of ciJF01272 under the control of Scer\GAL4en-e16E results in wing vein defects. The phenotype is more severe in males than females.
