Abstract

Fluorescence of H3-p histone and DAPI was studi ed at different stages of interphase and mitosis in cells of imaginal disks of third-instar Drosophila melanogaster larvae. Three stages differing in the spatial organization of the chromosome set in mitosis were revealed. At the first stage (prophase, prometaphase), the histone 3 phosphorylation level rises, and the volume occupied by the chromosome set in the nucleus increases. The distinctive features of the second stage (metaphase) are a gradual decrease in the histone 3 phosphorylation (the density of phosphorylation remaining constant) and a reduction of the volume occupied by the chromosome set. At the third stage (anaphase, telophase), the intensity and density of the signal from H3-p histone decrease, and the volume occupied by the chromosome set reduces. At this stage, in Mer 4 larvae, in contrast to the control strain, the cells prematurely pass from anaphase into telophase. In addition, a subpopulation of cells with an abnormally large volume of nuclear DNA during the G1 period was revealed in Mer 4 larvae. The cells of this subpopulation do not enter into the DNA synthesis and quit the cycle.
