Drosophila melanogaster (w1118) were subjected to blue light stress at different ages (1, 3 or 6 days post-eclosion) and retinal degeneration was assayed by immunostaining retinas for the rhabdomere markers phalloidin and Rh1. These original confocal microscopy images were used to generate Figure 1 in Chen et al. (2017), and full details citing this study are provided in the accompanying series.
