Overview of Hto lines

Each Hto insert is given a unique 3-letter identifier (note this not a gene name; use italic and all caps). Each insert lies within or upstream of its target gene.
Table: Column 1 lists the insert and the target gene (linked to its FlyBase page). Column 2 is the protein (or RNA) product. Column 3 is a summary of adult phenotypes (see below). Column 4 contains other images or data.

Molecular data

The full molecular data, as well as other aspects of genetics and phenotypes, are best obtained from our master Excel spreadsheet.
The current spreadsheet is available as supplement file Table S1 of our Genetics paper, Singari et al.; updated versions will also be posted here.
 

Phenotypic data

After a new line is recovered and isogenized, we cross it to a set of three drivers to get a profile of its phenotypic effects. We express in the wing blade with ms1096w-GAL4 (an insert in Beadex) to assess the effects on epithelial development. Eye phenotypes are characterized with eyeless-GAL4 (early eye development) and GMR-GAL4 (late eye development). Some lines were also crossed to pnr-GAL4 and A101-GAL4. The set of ms1096/ey/GMR images for each line are provided in the table above. It is notable that each line gives a unique combination of phenotypes with these three drivers, indicating they each execute a different biological activity.
 

Microscopy data

The subcellular distribution for a subset of lines was shown in Singari et al. Additional confocal images will be posted here periodically; the methods and stains for these are as described in Singari et al. The mCherry RFP signal is generally shown in original contrast (no sigma curve), except in the case of polytene spreads, where the contrast is enhanced in order to see the RFP signal clearly along with the SYBR Green DNA signal.
