Selection at the acid phosphatase locus in drosophila melanogaster

Selection at the acid phosphatase locus in drosophila melanogaster

Australian Journal of Biological Sciences 33(1): 97-104

Results of fitness estimates at the acid phosphatase locus in D. melanogaster revealed that the observed gene frequency equilibrium at the locus was maintained by frequency-dependent selection. Selection was due mostly to larva-adult viability. Gene-frequency response on media with added substrate (a-naphthyl acid phosphate) may have been caused in part by selection at the acid phosphatase locus, although the possibility of a correlated response cannot be excluded.
