Drosophila nasutoides is distinguished from other Drosophila species in that the metaphase karyotype shows a pair of very large V-shaped chromosomes. With Giemsa, a distinctive C-banding pattern is revealed along the arms of this large chromosome, indicating a largely heterochromatic nature. Furthermore, the banding patterns of the arms are symmerical,(More)
DNA samples were prepared from the early embryos of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax. When they were examined under the electron microscope, linear DNA molecules containing one or more replicating loops arrayed tandemly were abundantly observed. The average size of replicating loops is 0.83 μ. Further, the average distance between center-to-center of(More)
Metaphase chromosomes of D. nasutoides were hybridized situ with 3H-cRNA synthesized from the four satellites which make up 50–60% of the total DNA of this species. All four satellites were localized in the large, metacentric, heterochromatic chromosome four. They did not, however, appear to hybridize to centromeric or other constitutive heterochromatin,(More)
The satellite II DNA of Drosophila nasutoides is a highly diverged repetitive DNA, showing about 17% base changes between repeat units (Cordeiro-Stone and Lee, 1976). This DNA is cleaved by four different restriction enzymes to produce multimeric fragmentation patterns, indicating that their restriction sites are regularly arranged. Moreover, all four(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, deep yellow, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain LCS9T, was isolated from a soil sample at the tropical zone within the Ecorium of the National Institute of Ecology in Seocheon, central-western Korea. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain LCS9T clustered with members of the genus Flavisolibacter of the(More)
Chromatin structure can be probed by cross-linking DNA in situ using trioxsalen and irradiation with UV light. Presumably DNA within a nucleosome is protected from cross-linking so that this region appears as a single-strand loop in the electron microscope under a condition in which single-strands and double-strands are distinguished. Unprotected regions(More)
