Abstract

The 110 hour larval stage puffing patterns are described for Drosophila melanogaster larvae treated with carbon monoxide. A comparison of our findings is made with Michael Ashburner's control animals. We find that the carbon monoxide treated larvae portray no great induction of puffing when compared to Ashburner's controls. Also the various difficulties encountered the their possible solutions are discussed.
