  • The number of flies emerged in each case has been normalized as percentage with respect to expected numbers. Note that P2251 had an unlinked lethality, which was removed by recombination with a wild-type chromosome. The line obtained after recombination is referred to as P(3)org. This line fails to complement org and the lethality in this line is rescued by the transgene P(genomic).
