A 10 or 20 min in vitro treatment of salivary glands of late 3rd instar larvae of Drosophila melanogaster with l mg/ml benzamide (BM) at 24° C results in the specific induction of the 93 D puff and at the same time all other chromosomal RNA synthesis is severely repressed. Incorporation of 3H-uridine in the nucleolus is not affected. In glands heat shocked (37° C) for 20 min in presence of BM, all the temperature shock (TS) puffs are induced but they incorporate 3H-uridine to a lesser extent… CONTINUE READING
