SummaryThe mutation him-6(e1423) leads to generalized chromosomal nondisjunction during meiosis in oogenesis and spermatogenesis of C. elegans. As a result, gametes nullisomic or disomic for each of the six chromosomes occur at appreciable frequency. Crosses utilizing marked him-6 strains were used to generate and identify exceptional euploid progeny which had received both homologues of a marked autosome either from the male parent or from the female parent. Examples of all ten possible… CONTINUE READING
