The distribution of genes in the second and third chromosomes of Drosophila melanogaster suggests that crossing-over may be influenced by the spindle fibre at least in neighboring regions. The disparity between the genetic and cytological maps of these chromosomes especially in the spindle fibre regions (Dobzhanzky 2,3) is consistent with such a view.
