Abstract

A locus associated with a severe Minute effect has been mapped at 7C on the X chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster. Previous work has suggested that this Minute encodes ribosomal proteins S14A and S141B. We have made a chromosomal deficiency that removes the S14 ribosomal protein genes, yet does not display the Minute phenotype. These data suggest that the S14 genes do not actually correspond to the Minute locus.
