  • a Deleted genomic region represented according to polytene chromosome divisions (http://flybase.org).

  • b Percentage of embryos from endos00003/Df or Df/+; endos00003/+ females that hatch. Results from three or four experiments shown as mean ± SD. The total number of embryos analyzed is shown in parentheses.

  • c Df(3L)BSC815 uncovers mtrm.

  • d Df(3L)fz-GF3b uncovers endos.

  • e Females lay very few eggs, which contributes to their reduced fertility.
