GIANT polytene chromosomes from the salivary glands of various fly larvae have been extensively examined; because of their enormous size they have become one of the most important tools in investigations of gene activity and nuclear-cytoplasmic relationships. Malpighian tubules and certain other tissues of flies also possess polytene chromosomes, but they show a lower degree of polyteny. It is generally accepted that in most animal and plant cells there is a constant relation between the DNA… CONTINUE READING
