  • The Y chromosomal lampbrush loop-forming male fertility genes of Drosophila consist mainly of repetitive DNA sequences that do not code for proteins. We investigated whether differences in the transcription of these sequences can be detected in male-sterile alleles of male fertility gene Q, which forms the loop pair Nooses. The loop consists, for approximately two-thirds, of repeats of the Y-specific ay1 family of repetitive DNA sequences. Of the remaining one-third, at least one-half is… CONTINUE READING
