FlyBase is a compendium of everything we know about everything that is ever done or ever will be done in the fly, as it is continuously updated with new data. If you need to know it, it is summarized here or linked here, at least that is the goal and this website is a good start.

Subject: [Drosophila] purple mutant
Does anyone know of a good reference describing the
disturbance in pterin synthesis in the purple mutant?
I didn't find much from Google. The only detailed
information I've found says it produces two forms
of the 6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydrobiopterin synthase mRNA
with different promoters but the same reading frame.
I'd like to know what the consequences of this are
in terms of what pterins are over- and under-produced.
Is 6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydrobiopterin the purple pigment?
How are the downstream pterins affected? I'm curious
whether anyone has crossed this with sepia mutant
and what happens when you do.
