A locus responsible for the Nd-s mutation of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, has been mapped very close to or within the fibroin light (L) chain gene on the 14th chromosome (Takei, F., K. Kimura, S. Mizuno, T. Yamamoto, and K. Shimura, 1984, Jpn. J. Genet., 59:307-313). A strain of B. mori carrying the homozygous Nd-sD mutation (Nd-sD/Nd-sD; Nd-sD is allelic to Nd-s) secretes less than 0.3% of fibroin into the lumen of the posterior silk gland compared with a strain carrying the homozygous wild-type… CONTINUE READING
