T(2;9) mxp(Dch-3) = maxillopedia(Dachsund-3)
Gene: mxp
Feature/structure: Prothorax.
Linkage Group: ( 2 ,  9 )
Origin: Radiation-induced.
Description: • GOF. Prothoracic legs are dramatically reduced. Remainder of prothorax is reduced to a lesser extent, presumably via a homeotic transformation toward labial or maxillary segment. Effect restricted to prothorax. Antennae are normal.
