A 12 kb fragment of Drosophila melanogaster DNA cloned in a lambda phage, lambda T-A, is shown by in situ hybridization to contain sequences homologous to DNA at the extreme ends of each of the polytene chromosomes and to the pericentric sequences present in the beta heterochromatin. This pattern of hybridization is seen for each of the four D. melanogaster stocks that have been studied. Most of the sequence in lambda T-A shows no detectable homology to DNA within the banded chromosome arms… CONTINUE READING
