Knockdown of mys in eye-disc epithelium but not WG prevented the exit of R-cell axons and WG membrane. 3rd-instar larval eye–brain complexes were double-stained with MAb24B10 (green) and anti-Bdl (magenta). A Wild type. B Knocking down mys in eye-disc epithelium only by expressing UAS-mys-RNAi-HMS00043 under control of ey3.5-GAL4 (i.e. ey3.5 > mys-RNAi) caused a stalling phenotype identical to that in animals with mys knockdown in both eye-disc epithelium and WG (Fig. 1B–Bʺ). C The pattern of R-cell axonal projection and WG membrane extension appeared normal in animals in which mys was only knocked down in WG by expressing UAS-mys-RNAi-HMS00043 under control of Mz97-GAL4 (i.e. Mz97 > mys-RNAi) (n = 16). Scale bar: 20 µm
