Resistance to the cyclodiene insecticide dieldrin maps to a single gene (Rdl) on the left arm of chromosome III in Drosophila melanogaster (Meigen). The gene was further mapped by the use of chromosomal deficiencies to a single letter sub-region, 66F, on the polytene chromosome. The cross-resistance spectrum of a backcrossed strain lacking elevated mixed function oxidase activity, a common resistance mechanism, was examined. Levels of resistance similar to those found in other insects were… CONTINUE READING
