UASt regulatory sequences drive expression of the mrt coding region, tagged with Tag:FLAG.
abnormal size | larval stage, with Scer\GAL4ppl.PU
embryonic/larval fat body | larval stage, with Scer\GAL4ppl.PU
lipid droplet | larval stage, with Scer\GAL4ppl.PU
Expressing mrtUAS.Tag:FLAG under the control of Scer\GAL4ppl.PU induces significantly larger lipid droplets in the larval fat body, as compared to controls.
mrtUAS.Tag:FLAG/Scer\GAL4ppl.PU rescues mrtA-3
