Genotypes are gmr-Gal4/UAS-PKD-SE139-2 (a) and gmr-Gal4/+; dsPKD114-5/+ (b). Flies were analyzed at given times after eclosion (days AE) (c). Crosses were set up in parallel and performed at 25°C. External phenotypes scored for gmr > PKD-SE were dark spots (D) and for gmr > dsPKD fully black patches (e). nd, not determined.
