Differential fluorescent staining of Drosophila chromosomes with quinacrine mustard


The polytene and mitotic chromosomes of D. melanogaster, D. simulans, D. ananassae, and D. virilis were stained with the fluorescent dye, quinacrine mustard (QM). In all these species except D. ananassae, we have detected species-specific chromosomal loci which exhibit an extremely brilliant fluorescence. Most, but not all, of the brilliantly fluorescing… (More)
