  • a The daughters were heterozygous for the H(hsp/CP)3 transgene, which encodes the P transposase. Phenotypically non-Curly daughters were (TP5) snw /+; mutation/+; H(hsp/CP)3/+ or (TP5) snw/+; +/+; H(hsp/CP)3/+, and phenotypically Curly daughters were (TP5) snw/+; Cy Roi/+; H(hsp/CP)3/+; that is, they did not carry an aub or a piwi mutation.

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