  • Two wild-type controls are included: Binsn/Y male sibling larvae of mxc/Y individuals and y1 ac1 z1/Y males. mxcG46 and mxcG43 were induced on the y1 ac1 z1 chromosome. For Binsn/Y males, data from all the experimental series were pooled. N, no. of animals used for analysis of this genotype.

  • a Viability and phenotypes of mxc mutants. HT, adult homeotic transformations; S, male and female sterile; SD, small imaginal discs.

  • b Hemocyte counts of larvae from outcrossed balanced mxc stocks. Results are mean blood cells/milliliter ± SE.

  • c Significantly different from the Binsn control (P < 0.01).

  • d Significantly different from the Binsn wild-type control (P < 0.05).

  • e Significantly different from the y1 ac1 z1 wild-type control (P < 0.05).
