Twelve genomic clones containing sequences complementary to male-specific trancripts were isolated from a λ library of Drosophila melanogaster. They define five gene regions which were localized by in situ hybridization at 51F, 57D, 75C, 87F, and 95F. The region at 75C contains a small gene family for a male-specific transcript whereas all other coding sequences are represented only once in the genome. Four of the male-specific RNAs accumulate in the male accessory gland while the fifth… CONTINUE READING
