  • hopTum-l/FM7c females were mated to +/Y;D-stat6346/;His3-GFP males. Data from two independent experiments were pooled. *P < 0.01; significantly different from hopTum-l/Y;His3-GFP/+. **P < 0.01; cell type distribution significantly different from hopTum-l/Y;His3-GFP/+.

  • a Genotype of sibling larvae, which served as internal wild-type controls in this experiment. N, no. of animals used for this genotype.

  • b Mean hemocyte density per milliliter, ± SE.
