In the present study an attempt has been made to characterize the genetic ;;factors'' controlling quantitative characters, bristle numbers, in Drosophila melanogaster. A low sternopleural bristle multiple recessive marker third chromosome was used to analyze a high sternopleural third chromosome, in a high sternopleural bristle background. An attempt was(More)
It has been hypothesized that Om mutability in Drosophila ananassae (involving spontaneous mutation at 20 loci, resulting in semidominant, nonpleiotropic eye morphology defects) was due to insertion of a transposable element, tom. One particularly unstable X-linked Om allele produced several derivatives, one of which has a more extreme Om phenotype and was(More)
