Deficiency covers at least all of cosmid T23G4; right breakpoint may be in cosmid C47A4. Fails to complement tlp-1(bx85). Viable and fertile. Although hermaphrodites appear WT in other ways, there are some problems with T cell lineages (affecting the phasmids) and tail cell fusions. Variably Dyf. Male tail tip morphogenesis is also defective, resulting in blobby, "leptoderan" tails. Males are infertile due to an inability to properly copulate.
