An increase in the number of copies of the Drosophila locus Suvar(3)7 enhances position-effect variegation, i.e. the inactivation in some cells of genes brought close to heterochromatin by a chromosomal rearrangement. The locus produces two transcripts of 5047 and 4203 nt that differ solely by the length of their 3' untranslated region. That these transcripts encode the modifier of variegation Suvar(3)7 is demonstrated by genetic transformation with the corresponding cDNAs. The deduced protein… CONTINUE READING
