    The independent hereditary factors, such as Mendelian genes, are not sufficient for the existence and operation of genetic systems. The hereditary factors of different type were searched for. A new class of mutations, referred to as conditional mutations, was discovered in Drosophila melanogaster. Such a mutation dies in a restrictive genotype but survives and reproduces in a permissive genotype. Besides their conditional nature, mutations in a permissive genotype display a set of specific features that drastically distinguish them from conventional mutations, namely, they (1) are dominant; (2) are as a rule, lethal; (3) have drastically decreased fertility; (4) interact with chromosomal rearrangements; (5) switch the genome from a stable to an unstable state; (6) increase the basal metabolism; (7) induce modifications and morphoses; and (8) their manifestation is inherited i..
