From 1981 to 1983, 15,097 X-chromosomes were genetically extracted from a number of North American populations of D. melanogaster and were electrophoretically screened for rare mobility and activity variants of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). Overall, 13 rare variants were recovered for a frequency of about 10(-3). Eleven variants affect electrophoretic mobility and are apparently structural, and two variants exhibit low G6PD activity. One low activity variant is closely associated… CONTINUE READING
