Cytological localization of the maternal effect gene, tuh-1, in Drosophila melanogaster

Mol Gen Genet. 1976 Jul 23;146(2):189-90. doi: 10.1007/BF00268087.


The sex-linked gene, tuh-1, produces a maternal effect that is associated with the tumorous head abnormality in Drosophila melanogaster. With the aid of various known deletions, tuh-1 has been localized to band 20A1-2 on the salivary chromosome map of the X.
