Dynamics of the elimination of the temperature-sensitive lethal mutation l(2)M167DTS from experimental populations of Drosophila melanogaster under permissive conditions (25 degrees C) was studied. We have shown a rapid elimination of the mutation from the populations, selection for fitness of heterozygous individuals, association of the selection with high larval density and with the direction of the cross that had produced the founder males of the l(2)M167DTS/+ population, and the effect of… CONTINUE READING
