  • a The relative degree of enhancement is a cumulative score that reflects results seen in both female and male wings collected from at least three separate crosses. Approximately, the number of “+” signs corresponds to the mean size of MS1096>Dp110KD/+; E-Dp110KD/+ female wings compared to MS1096>Dp110KD/+ female wings as follows: +, >95%; ++, 91–95%; +++, 86–90%; ++++, <86%. P-values calculated using Student's t-test were <0.01 in every case.

  • b Nota were assessed for the Minute small and slender bristle phenotype.

  • c MS1096>Aos/+; E-Dp110KD/+ female wings were compared to MS1096>Aos/+ female wings. Wings were scored for significant size (mean wing area) and venation (presence and integrity of vein L3) differences.

  • d pix3c2 heterozygotes do show a mild reduction in wing size when reared under uncrowded, carefully synchronized culture conditions, but not under our standard culture conditions.
