Expression of sdtB.Scer\UAS
under the control of the maternal driver Scer\GAL4nos.PG
partially rescues the cuticle phenotype seen in sdtEH681
mutant embryos. 13% of embryos examined showed continuous cuticle over 2/3 of the surface compared to 8% in the negative control and approximately 10% only displayed cuticle fragments compared to over 70% in controls.
