E-MTAB-7513 - Capture-C in D. melanogaster carrying second (CyO) and third (TM3) balancer chromosomes
Last updated on 23 April 2019, released on 24 April 2019
We used a Drosophila melanogaster line (a "double balancer") carrying balancer chromosomes for both the second (CyO) and third (TM3) chromosomes, and crossed it to an isogenic wild-type "virginizer" line. Trans-heterozygous adults from the F1 generation were further crossed to the wild-type parental line to obtain the pool of N1 embryos. Allele-specific chromosome conformation capture (Capture-C) was used to measure changes in chromatin organization on both chromosomes.
