Gubb D, Roote J, Trenear J, Coulson D, Ashburner M. Topological constraints on transvection between white genes within the transposing element TE35B in Drosophila melanogaster. Genetics. 1997;146:919-37 pubmed
..Similarly, breakpoints immediately proximal or distal to both w genes give partial suppression. This transvection-dependent downregulation of w genes may result from mis-activation of the X-chromosome dosage compensation mechanism...
Gubb D. Cellular polarity, mitotic synchrony and axes of symmetry during growth. Where does the information come from?. Int J Dev Biol. 1998;42:369-77 pubmed
..The polarity patterns observed in adult cuticular bristles and hairs reflect accurate control of the shape of terminally differentiating cells rather than fine-grained positional information. ..
