Pattern formation in the wing and haltere imaginal discs after irradiation ofDrosophila melanogaster first instar larvae


In order to examine pattern formation in young imaginal discs consisting of only a few cells, freshly hatched larvae were irradiated with 1500 rads of γ-rays to kill cells. When these larvae became adults, their wings and halteres were examined to find aberrant patterns. Most of the abnormal patterns consisted of mirror image duplications of structures… (More)
