PEV phenotype of the Y-linked BL2 reporter in the A1 and D1 genetic backgrounds. The level of PEV is quantified by measuring the activity of the beta-galactosidase reporter gene. Each bar represents the activity level measured in lysate prepared from one adult whole fly of the indicated genotype. Bar height and error range represents the mean and standard error calculated from technical replications (i.e., measurements made on aliquots of the same lysate). Representative images of eye pigmentation for each genotype, shown below the bar graph, show the variegating phenotype anticipated
