Different ages and/or genotypes of Drosophila melanogaster were subjected to blue light stress and assays were performed to examine retinal degeneration (immunostaining retinas for the rhabdomere markers phalloidin and Rh1, confocal microscopy), fatty acid/lipid composition, electroretinograms (ERG) and ROS levels. These data were used to generate supplemental Figures in Chen et al. (2017), and full details citing this study are provided in the accompanying series.

Confocal microscopy images (.lsm, .tif, .jpg) can be opened using ImageJ or similar software. File names indicate the age, genotype, treatment and/or biological replicate as outlined in the text key files for each figure (Fig_key.txt). Quantified data are presented as csv files. ROS assays and lipid analysis are presented as excel or csv files. Electroretinograms (ERGs) are provided as .adicht files (LabChart Data files) and can be opened using LabChart Reader. The data are provided in the Figure folder corresponding to the appropriate panel in each supplemental figure.
