Third-chromosome mutagen-sensitive mutants of Drosophila melanogaster.
A total of 34 third chromosomes of Drosophila melanogaster that render homozygous larvae hypersensitive to killing by chemical mutagens have been isolated. Genetic analyses have placed responsible… Expand
Isolation and characterization of X-linked mutants of Drosophila melanogaster which are sensitive to mutagens.
Thirteen X-linked mutants have been isolated in Drosophila melanogaster which render male and homozygous female larvae sensitive to the mutagen methyl methanesulfonate. Their characterization and… Expand
The mei-9 alpha mutant of Drosophila melanogaster increases mutagen sensitivity and decreases excision repair.
The mei-9(a) mutant of Drosophila melanogaster , which reduces meiotic recombination in females (Baker and Carpenter 1972), is deficient in the excision of UV-induced pyrimidine dimers in both sexes.… Expand
