Third instar larvae expressing CG2608EY00214a under the control of Scer\GAL4Pxn.PS have a normal number of sessile hemocytes. The number of hemocytes in circulation is also similar to wild type. The dorsal sessile hemocyte department is not disrupted. Sessile hemocytes do not accumulate along the dorsal vessel or spread through the cuticle. Hemocyte shape is normal.
