Genomic clones containing beta tubulin sequences were isolated from a lambda library of Drosophila melanogaster. In situ hybridization localized three genes to 56D and 60B on chromosome 2 as well as to 85D on chromosome 3. The latter was known through genetic analysis to be specifically expressed during spermatogenesis. The genomic clone, pTu85, derived from this region contains one complete beta tubulin coding region as well as the 3' end of an additional so far unidentified beta tubulin gene… CONTINUE READING
