Jeneticists Clarify Chromosome Functions

-Daily-Kenneth Winter
GENETIC SYSTEMS--Diagram at left illustrates the chromosomal gene segregation process according to Mendelian principles. Here
the carriers of hereditary characteristics are located on the chromosomes within the nucleus of each cell. The segregation process oc-
curs immediately after the zygote stage. The more theoretical non-chromosomal system (right) has its genetic carriers located in the
cytoplasm, outside the cell nucleus. Here the segregation process, deviating from the Mendelian concepts, occurs later. In the gene re-
combination process, the same differences between the two types of systems occur. Though this system is frequently considered a new
theory, University geneticists point out that it dates back to 1908.

In order to overcome the prob-
lem of using the rare cases of male
transmission of nonchromosomal
genes cells were mated on a me-
dium that acted to kill all off-
spring that carried only female
nonchromosomal genes, leaving
those that got nonchromosomal
genes from the male.

Investigation has brought ge-
neticists to the point where, ac-
cording to Dr. Sager, they can
study these genes on a systematic
basis. The mechanism of the non-
chromosomal genes has been wide-
ly researched. The greatest re-
maining question is the exact func-
tion of these bodies.
