NEUROSPORA V. A SYNTHETIC MEDIUM FAVORING SEXUAL REPRODUCTION
Protein synthesis in salivary glands of Drosophila melanogaster: relation to chromosome puffs.
forked proteins are components of fiber bundles present in developing bristles of Drosophila melanogaster.
Results indicate that alterations in the ratios among the forked proteins, or between forked products and other components of the fiber, result in abnormal assembly of the fibrillar cytoplasmic structures necessary for bristle morphogenesis.
Genic Control of Biochemical Reactions in Neurospora

There is recorded in the literature a sufficient number of instances of mutations affecting the normal biochemistry of the organism to indicate that the gene exercises an important function in metabolism, and this aspect of the general problem is the subject of the discussion this afternoon.
The morphogenesis of cell hairs on Drosophila wings.
Heat shock protection against cold stress of Drosophila melanogaster.
Heat shock protein synthesis can be induced during recovery from cold treatment of Drosophila melanogaster larvae by a mild heat shock just before the cold shock.
Mutants of Drosophila Melanogaster Deficient in Xanthine Dehydrogenase.
The purification and some properties of the Drosophila enzyme and its deficiency in purified extracts of ry and ma-Z are described, as well as the production of rabbit antibodies to the enzyme and the presence of a cross-reacting substance in the mutants.
Kynurenine as an Intermediate in the Formation of Nicotinic Acid from Tryptophane by Neurospora.

These experiments lend stroiig support to the view that Neurospora converts tryptophane to nicotinic acid by way of kynurenine.
Drosophila Phenol Oxidases
The phenol oxidase systems of Drosophila melanogaster arise from at least four protein components, probably the four components represent specialized subunits of the oxidases produced.
Recovery of protein synthesis after heat shock: prior heat treatment affects the ability of cells to translate mRNA.
It is shown here that the major larval mRNAs are present in approximately normal (25 degrees C) concentrations after a 40.1 degrees C heat shock whether or not the animals receive a pretreatment, indicating that the pretreatment affects translation directly rather than messenger concentration.
