Drosophila: the genetics of two major larval proteins.

A series of irradiation-induced deficiencies covering 62 polytene chromosome bands in chromosome arm 3L of Drosophila melanogaster includes the loci of two abundant developmentally regulated larval proteins. The structural gene for larval serum protein 2 (LSP 2) lies at 68E3 or 4, and that for salivary glue secretion protein 3 between 68A8 and 68C11, coincident with a major intermoult puff active in the salivary gland at the time of glue synthesis. The structural genes for esterase 6 and four visible recessive loci lie within the same region.[1]
