Semidominant Effect of the l(1)ts403 (sbr 10) Mutation on Sex Chromosome Nondsjunction in Meiosis in Drosophila melanogaster Females Exposed to Heat

Semidominant Effect of the l(1)ts403 (sbr 10) Mutation on Sex Chromosome Nondsjunction in Meiosis... The sbrgene of Drosophila melanogasterbelongs to the NXF(nuclear export factor) family responsible for the mRNA transport from nucleus to cytoplasm. We have shown that in the heat-exposed (37°C, 1 h) females, the l(1)ts403(sbr 10) mutation leads, in particular, to the high-frequency nondisjunction and loss of sex chromosomes in meiosis. For this trait, the incomplete dominance of the sbr 10 mutation is observed.

Because of this, the sbr 10 mutation can be assigned to the gain-of-function alleles (those gaining the dominance function). Expression of the mutant sbr 10 allele against the background of the wild-type allele suggests that in the heat shock-exposed females, the heat-modified product of this ts allele has an active effect on sex chromosome disjunction in meiosis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The sbrgene of Drosophila melanogasterbelongs to the NXF(nuclear export factor) family responsible for the mRNA transport from nucleus to cytoplasm. We have shown that in the heat-exposed (37°C, 1 h) females, the l(1)ts403(sbr 10) mutation leads, in particular, to the high-frequency nondisjunction and loss of sex chromosomes in meiosis. For this trait, the incomplete dominance of the sbr 10 mutation is observed. At the same time, the sbr 10 mutation is recessive for many other traits of the heat-exposed flies: reduced viability, low fertility, impaired synthesis of the heat shock proteins, etc. The females heterozygous for the null allele (Df(1)v L4, a deletion eliminating gene srb) do not differ from females homozygous for the wild-type allele in frequency of the heat shock-induced nondisjunction and loss of sex chromosomes in meiosis. Because of this, the sbr 10 mutation can be assigned to the gain-of-function alleles (those gaining the dominance function). Expression of the mutant sbr 10 allele against the background of the wild-type allele suggests that in the heat shock-exposed females, the heat-modified product of this ts allele has an active effect on sex chromosome disjunction in meiosis.
