*

white, rosy, rough and vermillion are eye color markers,whereas yellow is a body color marker. hs-neo encodes a heat shock-inducible neomycin-selectable marker(Steller and Pirrotta, 1985), hs-opd encodes a heat shock-inducible insecticide-degrading enzyme(Benedict et al., 1995), Resistant to dieldrin (Rdl) encodes the GABA-A receptor(Stilwell et al., 1995) and Alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) encodes an enzyme involved in ethanol catabolism (Goldberg et al.,1983).
