Adults expressing mysdsRNA.Sym.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4dpp.blk1 have a substantial wrinkled area containing vein defects in the middle of the wing. The wrinkled area also contains wing blisters.
Expression of mysdsRNA.Sym.Scer\UAS under the control of Scer\GAL4H24 significantly blunts attraction to low concentrations of benzaldehyde and significantly reduces aversion to this odorant at high concentrations. Avoidance of 4-methylcyclohexanol and attraction to ethyl acetate are also disrupted and avoidance of 2-heptanone is marginally reduced when expression is driven by Scer\GAL4H24, while avoidance of linalool and linalool are unaffected. Negative geotaxis is normal in these flies.
