Heterozygous flies, containing the loco mutation and the deficiency chromosome (Df(3R)15CE1, Df(3R)17D1, locoΔ13) or the OrR, chromosome, were crossed with OrR. The ratio of eggs laid and eggs hatched is represented as a percentage. Significance was calculated by calculating Chi2 values between heterozygous mutant males and OrR, and the hemizygous mutants to the heterozygous deficiency lines. Chi2 > 6.64 suggests the two lines are closely linked. S: significant, NS: not significant.
