lethal - all die before end of embryonic stage | recessive
Embryos do not exhibit any cuticular abnormalities.
Due to a naming clash that goes back many years, two different alleles of nompC, with contrasting molecular lesions, were named nompC. Thanks to user input, we have been able to disambiguate these two alleles. They are now called nompC and nompC[a9]. The nompC allele was generated in the Zuker lab by EMS (FBrf0127378). The nompC[a1] allele was made by Szidonya and Reuter (FBrf0047784) and published in 1988 as jf24[a1]. Allele jf24[a9] was renamed in Lindsley and Zimm 1992 (p. 353) as l(2)25Dc. Allele l(2)25Dc subsequently became nompC based on a foot note in Kernan et al., 1994 (FBrf0073546) identifying l(2)25Dc as nompC. The references and data for jf24[a9]/l(2)25Dc/nompC have now been split from the nompC FlyBase record and are associated with allele nompC[a9].
