Three previously described genes, enhancer of yellow, 1, 2 and 3, are shown to cooperate with the zeste gene in the control of white gene expression. The mutations e(y)1u1, e(y)3u1, and to a lesser extent e(y)2u1, enhance the effect of the zeste null allele zv77h. Different combinations of e(y)1u1, e(y)2u1 and e(y)3u1 mutations with several other z alleles also enhance the white mutant phenotype, but only to levels characteristic of white alleles containing a deletion of the upstream eye… CONTINUE READING
