The effect of selection on the fertility of translocation heterozygotes in the house fly

The effect of selection on the fertility of translocation heterozygotes in the house fly

Journal of Medical Entomology 12(1): 59-64

A line of Musca domestica L. carrying an autosomal translocation was maintained through 10 generations by mating translocation heterozygote males to non-translocated females, the two genotypes being recognised by marker genes. Selection was applied for enhanced egg hatchability and as a result, the mean increased by about 10%, but a plateau was reached beyond which there was no further response to selection.
