Sex linked mutations in drosophila
Share this video:
The chromosomes present in the diploid cells of the majority of the sexually reproducing animals are of two types: autosomes bearing genes for somatic characters and sex chromosomes bearing genes for sex. Sex chromosomes also carry some genes for non-sexual characters such as colour blindness and haemophilia. Such genes which are always associated with sex chromosomes are called sex-linked genes. In man and Drosophila the sex chromosomes X and Y are unequal in size and shape, X being larger and rod shaped whereas Y is small and slightly curved. In birds and butterflies the sex chromosomes Z and W are also unequal in shape and size, Z being larger than W. In Mendelian pattern of inheritance, the genes for contrasting characters were located on autosomes but not on the sex chromosomes.

Sex-Linked Traits and Disorders
In the 'doubling-dose' method currently used in genetic risk evaluation, two principle assumptions are made and these are: 1 there is proportionality between spontaneous and induced mutations and 2 the lesions that lead to spontaneous and induced mutations are essentially similar. The studies reported in this paper were directed at examining the validity of these two assumptions in Drosophila. An analysis was made of the distribution of sex-linked recessive lethals induced by MR, one of the well-studied mutator systems in Drosophila. Appropriate genetic complementation tests with 15 defined X-chromosome duplications showed that MR-induced lethals occurred at many sites along the X-chromosome in contrast to the known locus specificity of MR-induced visible-mutations ; some, but not all these sites at which recessive lethals arose in the MR-system are the same as those known to be hot-spots for X-ray-induced lethals. With in situ hybridization we were able to demonstrate that a majority of MR-induced lethals is associated with a particular mobile DNA sequence, the P-element, i. The differences between the profiles of MR-induced and X-ray-induced recessive lethals, and the nature of MR-induced and X-ray-induced mutations, thus raise questions about the validity of the assumptions involved in the use of the 'doubling-dose' method. Abstract In the 'doubling-dose' method currently used in genetic risk evaluation, two principle assumptions are made and these are: 1 there is proportionality between spontaneous and induced mutations and 2 the lesions that lead to spontaneous and induced mutations are essentially similar.

Thomas Hunt Morgan discovered sex linkage in fruit fly Drosophila. It supported the chromosomal theory of heredity. Morgan deveioped cultures of Drosophila flies. He studied different traits like mour of the eye.
