Figure 2 (image) RIKEN Share Print E-Mail Caption Disrupted heterochromatin by stress via dATF-2 is inherited. Exposure of flies to heat stress during early embryogenesis caused the disruption of heterochromatin, leading to red eye (upper). When the heat-stressed flies were mated with non-stressed flies, the generated progenies exhibited slightly the red eye phenotype (lower right). The amount of red eye pigment was quantified and shown (lower right).
