Pigment patterns in mutants affecting the biosynthesis of pteridines and xanthommatin in Drosophila melanogaster
Eye-color mutants of Drosophila melanogaster have been analyzed for their pigment content and related metabolites. Xanthommatin and dihydroxanthommatin (pigments causing brown eye color) wereExpand

Development and Characterization of Diamondback Moth Resistance to Transgenic Broccoli Expressing High Levels of Cry1C
ABSTRACT A field-collected colony of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, had 31-fold resistance to Cry1C protoxin ofBacillus thuringiensis. After 24 generations of selection with Cry1CExpand
