Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, arrested szT1 aneuploids, Lon males, mc46 hemizygotes (WT males) and mc46 homozygotes. mc46 is a deletion that results in homozygotes which show enlarged vacuoles (late endosomes and lysosomes) and lay eggs with enlarged vacuoles that die at different stages of embyronic development.
VF11C1L.1. Homozygous sterile deletion chromosome balanced by lon-2-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, arrested szT1 aneuploids, Lon-2 males, ok1150 hemizygotes (WT males) and ok1150 homozygotes (usually sterile, sometimes Dpyish, may produce a few progeny). Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
