Maintenance of polymorphism by potentially injurious genes in eight natural populations of the platyfish,xiphophorus maculatus

Abstract

The polymorphism of the platyfish,Xiphophorus maculatus, consists in part of a series of seven tail patterns produced by micromelanophores, which are controlled by an autosomal series of dominant multiple alleles. Also present are a series of five body patterns produced by macromelanophores which are controlled by an incompletely sex-linked series of… (More)
