Lethal mutation rate in Drosophila treated with 20-methylcholanthrene.


Tumors in Drosophila are in many ways similar to atypical growths in mammals, although they are dissimilar in others (6). A frequent question concerning these tumors is whether carcinogens alter their incidence. This has been tested by treat ing a tumor stock of Drosophila with 20-methylcholanthrene and is reported at this time. In a previous study (4) it… (More)
