We found evidence that RpS3 heterozygous flies display mild but significant increase in wing size and reduction in aspect ratio, a phenotype dependent on Xrp1. Moreover, additional genetic interaction data is presented with the members of the Hippo pathway. From results we were able to support our hypothesis in the case of yki but not in wts.
