The genetic identification of a heterochromatic segment on the X chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster.


An autosomal euchromatic maternal-effect mutant, abo (= abnormal oocyte), interacts with, or regulates the activity of, the heterochromatin of the sex chromosomes of Drosophila melanogaster. It is shown that this interaction or regulation with the X chromosome involves a specific heterochromatic locus or small region that maps to the distal penultimate one-eighth of the basal X-chromosome heterochromatic segment.
