The level of kynurenine hydroxylase was measured throughout the development of wild type and the eye color mutants v, cn, st, ltd, cd, kar, w, ca, bri and p(P) of Drosophila melanogaster. In all cases except cn a bimodal distribution of enzyme activity during development was observed. Activity is initially detectable in second instar. A maximum is reached in early third instar. Activity declines prior to puparium formation. Shortly after pupation, activity rises dramatically to reach a maximum… CONTINUE READING
