A new mutant allele (w(DZL)) at the white locus of Drosophila melanogaster is dominant to the wild-type allele, but apparently only when the two alleles are synapsed. When chromosomal rearrangements prevent somatic pairing between the two white alleles, w(DZL) is rendered recessive to wild type. This observation suggests that the dominance of w(DZL) is… CONTINUE READING
