Misexpression of abd-AScer\UAS.cMa within NB-5-6 in the thorax, under the control of Scer\GAL4lbe.K results in an early lineage truncation, mimicking the situation that normally occurs in the abdomen, ultimately leading to a smaller thoracic NB5-6 lineage size.
Expression of abd-AScer\UAS.cMa in the thorax using the Scer\GAL4how-24B driver induces abdominal specific muscle patterns in the thoracic segments.
Expression of abd-AScer\UAS.cMa in the tracheal system under the control of Scer\GAL4btl.PS suppresses formation of the tracheal cerebral branch.
Expression of abd-AScer\UAS.cMa under the control of Scer\GAL4arm.PS promotes the formation of a stereotypical trapezoidal arrangement of larval denticle belts, as in the wild-type.
Expression of abd-AScer\UAS.cMa under the control of Scer\GAL4arm.PS does not significantly alter the promotion of larval abdominal peristalsis (locomotion).
