  • The wild-type level of yellow gene expression produces flies with black pigmentation. Brown coloration indicates repression of yellow gene expression. The wild-type level of white gene expression produces flies with a red eye color. Orange coloration indicates repression of white gene expression. Pigmentation was uniform in the cuticle or eye, unless noted otherwise. var, variegation; ND, not determined.
