hypomorphic allele - molecular evidence
18bp deletion that removes amino acid residues 355-360.
18 nucleotide deletion, removing 6 amino acid residues (codons 355 to 360) in tetratricopeptide repeat domain VI.
lethal (with Df(2R)CX1)
Syncytial blastoderm nuclear divisions are normal in embryos derived from homozygous female germline clones, but cortical nuclei fail to elongate and become mislocalised during blastoderm cellularisation.
fand2 is rescued by fand+tGa
The fand2 allele fails to complement both fandP218 and fandH124 alleles.
