Latitudinal clines for nucleotide polymorphisms in the Esterase 6 gene of Drosophila melanogaster

Coppin, Christopher; Odgers, Wendy A; Oakeshott, John Graham


Previous studies have found non-neutral patterns of nucleotide polymorphism in the promoter and coding regions of Est6 in D. melanogaster. Coding region polymorphism peaks around two closely linked replacement differences associated with the EST6-F/EST6-S allozyme polymorphism. The promoter contains two common, highly diverged haplotype groups, P1 and P7, that differentially affect Est6 expression. Allozyme studies have also revealed latitudinal clines in EST6-F and EST6-S frequencies that...[Show more]
