GRELL ( 1962a) has made the remarkable observations that, in Drosophila, R*chromosomes involved in nonhomologous (heterologous) pairing in a variety of configurations are derived entirely from the no-exchange class of tetrad and that the frequency of that class is not altered appreciably. This is contrary to the expectation that heterologous pairing, where possible, would generally compete with homologous pairing and so increase the overall frequency of no-exchange tetrads in those chromosomes… CONTINUE READING
