To determine whether and how laboratory and natural selection act on the hsp70 (70-Kd heat-shock protein) genes of Drosophila melanogaster, we examined hsp70 allele frequencies in two sets of populations. First, five populations reared at different temperatures for more than 20 years differentially fixed both a large insertion/deletion (indel) polymorphism at the 87A7 hsp70 cluster ("56H8"/"122") and a single nucleotide polymorphism at the 87C1 hsp70 cluster. In both cases, the 18 degrees C and… CONTINUE READING
