Genetic consequences of linkage between malathion resistance and an autosomal male-determining factor in house fly (Diptera: Muscidae)



Genetic consequences of linkage between malathion resistance and an autosomal male-determining factor in house fly (Diptera: Muscidae)



Journal of Economic Entomology 85(5): 1566-1570



The pattern of inheritance of genes conferring resistance to malathion and genetic consequences of linkage between an autosomal male-determining factor and resistance genes on the second chromosome were investigated in a strain of house fly, Musca domestica L., selected for malathion resistance. The second and fifth chromosomes contribute significantly to malathion resistance. The presence of a male-determining factor linked with the resistance genes on the second chromosome resulted in a strong sexual dimorphism in malathion resistance. We also observed that the male-determining factor changed its linkage relationship from the third linkage group to the second linkage group during the selection experiments.
