Distribution of RNA polymerase on Drosophila polytene chromosomes as studied by indirect immunofluorescence.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Using indirect immunofluorescence visualization techniques we investigated the in situ distribution of RNA polymerase B on Drosophila melanogaster polytene chromosomes. The enzyme was found at many sites distributed throughout the genome in a pattern clearly distinct from that observed for histone H1, but it was especially concentrated in puffs induced by heat shock.
