Localization and function of heterochromatin in Drosophila by: 7. chromosome was the attached-X (reversed metacentric, in the descriptive termi- nology of NOVITSKI ). Another example of a compound X chromosome is the reversed acrocentric (RA). If a compound chromosome becomes involved in nonhomologom pairing, it is possible, at one extreme, that crossovers between elements of the compound pre-. Previous studies of reversed acrocentric compound-X chromosomes suggested peculiar influences of heterochromatin on both the synthesis and meiotic behavior of such compunds.

COINCIDENCE OF CROSSING OVER IN DROSOPHILA than would otherwise be the case. If, in the above example, the regions M N and P Q are not far apart, a break between M N will tend to prevent the occurrence of a break between P and Q (STURTEVANT , , MORGAN, STURTEVANT, MULLER and BRIDGES , pp. , MULLER ). This phenomenon, which has been termed File Size: 2MB. Abstract. Drosophila have two basic forms of chromosomes—mitotic and polytene—that have vastly different morphologies and cellular roles. Polytene chromosomes are found in interphase nuclei of differentiated cells, being especially prominent in certain tissues of the larva and adult by: 2.   (A) Diagram of the karyotypes of normal and attached X females and the pattern of inheritance of the attachment. In an attached X female both normally acrocentric X arms are associated with a single centromere.

In order to test the influence of the proximal heterochromatin upon the induction of recombination in an adjacent euchromatic region, crossing-over experiments were carried out simultaneously with two types of Drosphila melanogaster female irradiated with X-ray doses ranging from 1 to 6 kR. Females of one of the genotypes (designated “N”) were heterozygous for a series of 3rd chromosome Cited by: 9.
