Relative abundance of various rDNA repeat types in polytene nuclei of Drosophila melanogaster.

Abstract

The relative abundance of the five predominant X chromosome nucleolus organizer repeat types was determined in polytene nuclei. Previous studies showed that the major type I insert containing class of repeats was disproportionately underreplicated when compared with the insert-free class of repeats in these nuclei. Our results demonstrate that this… (More)
