  • a Calculated as (number of flies in the eighth class) divided by (number of flies in the fourth class).

  • b They were crossed to w; Int(2L)D+S, Nup160sim/CyO; Nup96sim/+ males. The balancers TM3 and TM6C have Sb (and Ser in the former) as a dominant marker. l(3)Nup96 stands for a recessive mutation of the Nup96 gene, Nup98-96339.
