SENSITIVITY to carbon dioxide in Drosophila melanogaster is believed to depend on the presence in the cytoplasm of an agent which has been called a 'genoid'. As established by L'Héritier and Teissier1, males of the standard sensitive stock transmit genoids, therefore sensitivity, to a variable but important fraction of their progeny. Sensitive females transmit it to all their offspring.
