Inheritance of DDT-Dehydrochlorinase in the House Fly1



Inheritance of DDT-Dehydrochlorinase in the House Fly1



Journal of Economic Entomology 52(5): 931-935



A modification of a method devised by Sternburg et al. (1954 Jour. Agric. and Food Chem. 1125-30) made it possible to assay the DDT-dehydrochlorinase (DDT'ase) in individual flies of a population of DDT-resistant (R) house flies, Musca domestica L. By this means it was possible to obtain a measure of the variability of this enzyme in a population. It was also possible to relate the concentration of DDT'ase in parents with that found in the offspring.
