Selection at the acid phosphatase locus in drosophila melanogaster






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

Selection at the acid phosphatase locus in drosophila melanogaster

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.
