Figure 2

Eye phenotype of Dcp-1 over-expressing flies. (A and E) The eyes of wild-type flies. (B and F) The eyes of flies carrying one copy of Dcp-1 GF appeared small and rough with reduced pigmentation. (C and G) Flies carrying two copies of Dcp-1 GF have a dramatically stronger disrupted eye phenotype. Ommatidia and pigment spots are almost absent. (E, F, and G) Scanning electron micrographs of the eyes in panels A, B and C, respectively. (D and H) Dcp-1 GF phenotype was rescued by co-expression with p 35 and thread.
