Increased number of nucleoli in the salivary gland cells of Drosophila melanogaster under conditions of rDNA dose compensation

Abstract

A considerable increase in the number of nucleoli non-associted with the nucleolar organizer (NO) was shown in the salivary gland cells of Drosophila melanogaster mutants, heterozygous for a deficiency of NO. The frequency of formation of additional nucleoli increased with the raising of the chromosome polyteny level. By means of in situ hybridization we… (More)
