Laboratory populations of D. busckii flies were kept for one generation on media containing different carbohydrate sources (maltose and rice, potato or maize starch). The flies maintained on standard potato medium served as a control. Progeny were analyzed for α-amylase activity and Amy-electromorph frequencies. Spectrophotometrically assayed amylase activity was highest in the flies cultured on potato starch medium and lowest in specimens kept on maltose. Carbohydrate source in some substrates… CONTINUE READING
