The claret-non-disjunctional (cand) mutation is a female-specific mutation in Drosophila melanogaster, which causes a high frequency of mortality (89--90%) in eggs laid by the homozygous females. Among the progeny that survive to the adult stage, greater than 50% are aneuploid and/or mosaic for the X and number 4 chromosomes. The genetic studies of cand indicate that it is homologous to the claret mutation (ca-simulans) in Drosophila simulans. The cytological effect of the cand mutation on… CONTINUE READING
