Alteration of the gene for xanthine dehydrogenase in Drosophila following treatment with wildtype DNA


Microinjection of whole genome DNA into Drosophila embryos can result in a variety of changes to the host genome. In the experiments reported here, wildtype DNA is injected into mutant animals lacking xanthine dehydrogenase activity by virtue of a mutation in the structural gene for the enzyme, the rosy gene. Animals with wildtype eye pigmentation and… (More)
