Regulation in rDNA-deficient Drosophila melanogaster.


Bobbed mutants of Drosophila melanogaster were used to determine whether there is any functional compensation for deficiency in rDNA content. The rate of rRNA accumulation was measured in the testes of five bb mutants of different phenotypic severity and in a wild type strain. The different rates of rRNA accumulation were compared to the phenotype… (More)
