Mutations at the Drosophila melanogaster locus female sterile (1) homeotic (fs(1)h) result in segmental abnormalities including missing organs and homeotic transformations in the progeny of mutant mothers. Homeotic transformations are enhanced when the zygotes carry one of several third chromosome mutations, specifically alleles or deficiencies of the trithorax (trx) locus, also called Regulator-of-bithorax, and some alleles of bithorax complex (BX-C) genes. These observations suggest that… CONTINUE READING
