In previous tests an increased resistance to acute irradiation was established in a population which, during a great number of generations was irradiated at an early larval stage. The purpose of the present investigation was to localize genes, controlling radioresistance in this population to definite chromosomes. Chromosome substitution lines were used in which control was exercised over X and Y chromosomes, as well as the two big autosome pairs. The analyses have shown that resistance is… CONTINUE READING
