Two reproductively isolated demes of brown trout coexist in a small Swedish mountain lake, Lake Bunnersjörna. We electrophoretically examined 102 specimens from that lake for 27 enzymes encoded by 54 loci. The two demes are fixed for different alleles at a lactate dehydrogenase locus (LDH-1); statistically significant allele frequency differences at five(More)
A previously described isozyme polymorphism at one of two skeletal muscle LdhA loci in brown trout is due to a null allele, Ldh1(n), producing no detectable catalytic activity. Homozygotes for this allele have approximately only 56% of the LDH activity in skeletal muscle relative to homozygotes for the active allele. The remaining activity results from(More)
Coexisting freshwater resident and anadromous (sea-run migratory) Brown Trout, Salmo trutta L., were compared genetically with landlocked populations (i.e. living above impassable waterfalls) in the same drainage system in western Norway. No genetic differentiation was found between resident and anadromous life-history types using the same locality and time(More)
An allozyme investigation of 41 protein-coding loci in two morphologically similar fishes, Atlantic and Pacific cod, indicates that Pacific cod experienced a severe population bottleneck that led to the loss of gene diversity and gene expression. Pacific cod possesses a significantly lesser amount of gene diversity (H = 0.032) than Atlantic cod (H = 0.125)(More)
According to probability laws, additive interaction between factors influencing recombination frequency suggests that the factors affect the same event. This analysis, applied to Carpenter and Sandler's (1974) data, permits separation of different sequential events during establishment of preconditions for exchange. The validity of another mathematical(More)
1. Canine tracheal explants, cultured in medium 199, actively incorporated radioactive precursors into secreted macromolecules in vitro. 2. Puromycin, 6-diazo-5-oxo-l-norleucine and ouabain markedly inhibited the incorporation of these precursors. 3. Exogenous glucosamine at concentrations above 20mm caused a greater than 50% inhibition of the incorporation(More)
