Allelic complementation at the decapentaplegic gene complex (dpp: 2-4-0, cytogenetic location: polytene chromosome bands 22F1-3) of Drosophila melanogaster frequently occurs between site mutations. Two specific instances of allelic complementation are shown to be dependent upon normal somatic chromosome synapsis of homologous dpp genes. Numerous strains have been identified that bear lesions that disrupt allelic complementation when heterozygous with structurally normal chromosomes; each of… CONTINUE READING
