The alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) gene has been isolated fromDrosophila simulans andD. mauritiana by screening λ clone libraries of each with a previously cloned Adh gene fromD. melanogaster. The isolated λ clones were subcloned and partially sequenced to determine the relatedness of these species and to examine details of evolutionary change in the structure of the Adh gene. We report the sequence of the first 704 nucleotides of each gene as well as 127 bases in the 5′ untranslated region. When… CONTINUE READING
