Eye phenotype of Dp(1;f)LJ9 Drosophila with dCTCF alleles. (a) Phenotypes of maternally inherited Dp(1;f)LJ9 mini-X chromosome ranging from 0% to 100% pigmentation; control n = 300, CTCFEY15833 n = 300, CTCF30 n = 300. (b) Phenotypes of maternally inherited Dp(1;f)LJ9 mini-X chromosome ranging from >80% to 100% pigmentation; control n = 150, CTCFEY15833 n = 132 (Kolmogorov-Smirnov test; P < 0.001) and CTCF30 n= 122 (Kolmogorov-Smirnov test; P < 0.001). (c) Phenotypes of paternally inherited Dp(1;f)LJ9 mini-X chromosome ranging from 0% to 100% pigmentation; control n = 300, CTCFEY15833 n = 300, CTCF30 n = 300. Each eye was scored depending on its phenotypic class, and the prevalence of each phenotypic class is expressed as a percentage versus the total number of eyes scored (n).
