The eggs produced by deep orange females (dor/dor) of Drosophila melanogaster have a defect that causes early death of the deep orange embryos derived from these eggs. Ovaries transplanted from deep orange females to normal female hosts continue to produce defective eggs, showing that the dor mutation directly affects an ovarian function. In heterozygous embryos (dor(+)/dor) derived from eggs of deep orange females, the presence of a paternal dor(+) gene enables normal development to occur in… CONTINUE READING
