Notch signaling in wild type follicle cells is upregulated by either NICD or NEXT over-expression. Females of the genotype hs-flp, UAS-mCD8GFP/act > CD2 > Gal4; +/UAS-NICD (A) or hs-flp, UAS-mCD8GFP/act > CD2 > Gal4; +/UAS-NEXT (B) were dissected and the egg chambers were stained for Hnt (red). Over-expression of NICD at stage 7–8 in wild type follicle cells marked by GFP expression (green) enhances the level of Hnt expression in 51% of follicle cells (n = 100). Over-expression of NEXT at stage 7–8 in wild type follicle cells marked by the expression of GFP (green) enhances the level of Hnt expression in 92.5% of follicle cells (n = 40). Bars are 15 μm.
