Of the many genes that are expressed in the visual system of Drosophila melanogaster adults, some affect larval vision. However, with the exception of one X-linked mutation, no genes that have larval-specific effects on visual system structure or function have previously been reported. We describe the isolation and characterization of two mutant alleles that define the larval photokinesis A (lphA) gene, one allele of which is associated with a P-element insertion at cytogenetic locus 8E1-10… Expand
