  • The objective of this study was to test the idea that the macronuclear (somatic) genetic information is randomly distributed at each cell division in Tetrahymena pyriformis, syngen 1. We took advantage of a quick and reliable test for the detection of stable vegetative segregants in clones heterozygous for ts2, a heat-sensitive mutation. Clonesthat originated from cells inferred to contain very few (1-3) copies of the ts2-+ allelein their macronuclei were selected for pedigree analysis… CONTINUE READING
