Polytene chromosomes show normal gene activity but some mRNAs are abnormally accumulated in the pseudonurse cell nuclei of Drosophila melanogaster otu mutants

Abstract

Certain mutant alleles of the ovarian tumor (otu) locus give rise to polytene chromosomes in the pseudonurse cells (PNCs). We have previously shown that the banding pattern of these germ line-derived chromosomes is similar to that in the larval salivary gland chromosomes. In this study, we have examined the gene activity of these chromosomes. General gene… (More)
