Abstract

We have examined the chromatin structure of the hsp 70 gene complex at the 87A7 heat shock locus of Drosophila melanogaster. Our results indicate that this locus has a complex chromatin organization. Heat induction causes highly specific alterations in the chromatin throughout the locus. There are major changes within the heat shock gene transcription units, and in both the upstream and downstream flanking spacers.
