Phenotypic information for the genes in this entry imported from model organism databases.

The yellow locus controls the melanotic pigment pattern of the cuticle of the adult fly and the pigmented mouth parts and denticle belts of the larval cuticle. y mutants can be separated into the following phenotypic classes, each group involving a color change from gray-black to yellow-brown (Nash, 1973): (1) Mutants that show a total loss of pigmentation from the cuticle (y-type) and (2) mutants that show a mosaic pigment pattern, some regions of the cuticle being wild type and others yellow in color (y2-type). (See FlyBase for complete description.)
