Structure of Drosophila polytene chromosomes. Evidence for a toroidal organization of the bands.


Avoiding acid fixation or squashing, the structure of Drosophila salivary gland polytene chromosomes has been examined in detail in nuclei, with special emphasis on the organization of the DNA in the chromosome bands. Cut serial sections, optical serial sections, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) on whole mounts, high-voltage electron microscopy (HVEM) on… (More)
