The supernatant is transferred into a 3-ml conical tube and centrifuged at 500 rpm for 5 min. The supernatant is discarded, and the pellet is resuspended in 2 ml of I % citrate solution added drop by drop. The pellet is left in the hypotonic solution for 10 min. The preparation is spun for 5 min at 500 rpm. As much of the supernatant as possible is removed. The cells are resuspended by flicking the tube so that a thin film of cells covers the wall of the tube. Fixative is added (3 parts ethyl alcohol to I part glacial acetic acid plus eventually a trace of chloroform) drop by drop, flicking the tube vigorously in order to get a good suspensIOn.

X. CALF THYMUS DNA AND OTHER MACROMOLECULES, CARCINOGENS In 1939, the Russian geneticist Gershenson reported that addition of large amounts of calf thymus DNA to the food of Drosophila larvae yielded not only phenocopies but also transmissible visible mutations. Geneticists in Russia and the West argued that, if this treatment were indeed mutagenic, it should also produce sex-linked lethals. The fact that this did not happen was taken as evidence against Gershenson's claim. The war interrupted this work.
