RNA was extracted from Drosophila egg chambers which had been separated into four size classes, and in addition from mature ovarian eggs. The RNAs were hybridized with a Drosophila single-copy DNA tracer. Egg chamber RNAs from all stages of oogenesis examined contained single-copy DNA transcripts equal in complexity to the RNA of the mature egg.
