A male-determining factor on autosome 1 and occurrence of male-recombination in the housefly Musca domestica L



A male-determining factor on autosome 1 and occurrence of male-recombination in the housefly Musca domestica L



Japanese Journal of Genetics 57(3): 221-229



Linkage analyses of sex-determining factors in a strain (SDF) of Musca domestica L. from Fiji were carried out in Japan using genetically marked autosomes. Although a Y chromosome could not be detected, the presence of at least 3 kinds of autosomal male-determining factors, IM, IIM and IIIM was demonstrated in the males. Both males and females carried the IIM chromosome in the homozygous state. In addition, the females carried a 4th chromosomal female-determining factor that acted epistatically over the plural number of M factors. It is known that no crossing-over occurs in normal XY-type house-fly males. However, XX males heterozygous for the IM chromosome extracted from the SDF strain and an acv bp marker chromosome produced recombinants with very low frequency. These recombinants seemed to be the resultants of male crossing-over at the meiotic cell stage. On the basis of male-recombination data, the M factor on the 1st chromosone was mapped on the right side of the bp locus.
