Transvection effect and viability of Drosophila under the influence of the microwave radiation

Abstract

Microwave radiation influence upon different cell functions. The most important is the influence on genetic processes and genome functions. In this connection investigations of microwave influence on effect of transvection are of special interest. The transvection effect, namely the influence of one allelic gene on another gene located in the homologous chromosome is connected with the interaction of homologous chromosomes. Transvection effects are manifested in two forms - transactivation than one gene activates another, and transinactivation, than one gene suppresses another gene. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the influence of microwave radiation of different polarization state on transvection effect, namely effect of transinactivation of gene brown/sup +/.
