  • Z1–Z4, transgenic flies carrying constructs to misexpress the various zinc-finger isoforms of the BR-C in response to heatshock; w1118, the host line used for the construction of the transgenic lines used as a control. OrR (wild-type) flies were also used as a control. Approximately 100 flies (50 males and 50 females) from each stock were used in the heatshock experiments.
