The mottler of white (mw) locus has been determined to interact with alleles of the white (w) eye color locus which are a subset of the transposable element insertion mutants. The transposable elements belong to six different types, including copia, and are located at several sites within the w gene. Three X-ray-induced revertants of white-apricot (wa) no… CONTINUE READING
