    • Abstract


      Chromosomal aberrations were detected in the progenies of hydroxylammonium sulphate-induced recombinants ofaristaless-dumpy anddumpy-black regions of the males ofDrosophila melanogaster. When males from homozygous lines derived from these male recombinants were crossed to females from an aberration-free stock, the chromosomal aberrations were not recovered in recombinant heterozygotes. Implications of these observations are discussed in relation to role of chromosomal aberrations in induced male recombination inD. melanogaster.
