  • Preblastoderm embryos of D. virilis strain 9 were injected with three different Penelope-containing plasmids, and the progeny were analyzed for visible phenotypes. Phenotypes of mutations are indicated in italics when they correspond to a previously characterized mutation; numbers of independent alleles isolated are indicated in parentheses. The numbers of these alleles containing a copy of Ulysses at the insertion site are also indicated, with the chromosomal locations in parentheses.
