Characterization of an autosomal rudimentary-shaped wing mutation in Drosophila melanogaster that affects pyrimidine synthesis.

Abstract

A new autosomal mutation, rudimental (ral), which causes rudimentary-shaped wings in Drosophila melanogaster, has been isolated following ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) mutagenesis. The wing phenotype of rudimental is identical to that of the X-linked rudimentary (r) mutation, which affects the first three enzymes in the pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway. The… (More)
