Mass Preparation of Nuclei from the Larval Salivary Glands of Drosophila Hydei


A method has been developed for isolating gram quantities of salivary glands from late third instar larvae of Drosophila hydei. The isolated glands have a normal appearance and incorporate RNA and DNA precursors normally. Nuclei can be isolated from these glands in 90% yield with the use of detergents. These nuclei contain morphologically normal giant… (More)
