  • a The sons were heterozygous for the H(hsp/CP)2 transgene, which encodes the P transposase. Phenotypically non-Curly sons were (TP) snw; aub or +/H(hsp/CP)2 and phenotypically Curly sons were (TP) snw; Cy Roi/H(hsp/CP)2; that is, they did not carry an aub mutation.

  • b Average unweighted excision rate [(sn+ + sne)/(snw + sn+ + sne)] ± standard error.
