Biology MCQ. Drosophila are known to exhibit grooming behaviors that are executed in a predictable manner. To get around this problem, the nuclei that have made a mistake detach from their centrosomes and fall into the centre of the embryo yolk sacwhich will not form part of the fly.
Initiating the regulation pathway The primary signal determining whether the fly develops as a male or female is the number of X chromosomes relative to the number of autosomes non-sex chromosomes in a cell the X:A ratio.
All rights reserved. In simpler terms, the sex determination is achieved by a balance of female determinants on the X chromosome X and male determinants on the autosomes A. Scientific Reports.
Ecological Monographs. When virgin females are shown other females copulating with a certain type of male, they tend to copulate more with this type of male afterwards than naive females which have not observed the copulation of others. Wilson and Stevens Bibcode : Oecol.
The X or Z Chromosome usually resembles an autosome in size and gene density, although there are some predicted and observed differences in gene content and evolutionary rates between the X or Z and autosomes Rice ; Charlesworth et al. In Morgan was granted a year's absence to conduct research in the laboratories of Stazione Zoologica in Naples , where Wilson had worked two years earlier.
