  • a The daughters were heterozygous for the H(hsp/CP)2 transgene, which encodes the P transposase. Phenotypically non-Curly daughters were (TP5) snw/+; aub or +/H(hsp/CP)2 and phenotypically Curly daughters were (TP5) snw/+; Cy Roi/H(hsp/CP)2; that is, they did not carry an aub mutation.

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