  1. Slit apicalisation is expressed as a ratio of the average immunofluorescence intensity in the apical region, divided by the intensity of non- apical heart fluorescence. Means shown ± standard error. Data sets significantly different from yw or yw, UAS-moe-mCherry/+, tup-GFP, dMEF-GAL4/+ controls are in bold italic if p < .001 and in bold if p < .05 by Mann-Whitney U test
