A number of mutants of Drosophila melanogaster are characterized by the absence of structures present in the wild type. Imaginal discs from the wing mutants vestigial, apterous-Xasta, Beadex and cut and from the eye mutants Bar, eyeless and lozenge were examined by light and electron microscopy. In all these mutants, with the exception of lozenge, clear evidence of degeneration was found. The onset and duration of degeneration and the number and distribution of dying cells were specific… CONTINUE READING
