Linkage of the genes for DDT and dieldrin resistance in larvae of the mosquito Aedes aegypti.

Autor(es): Hitchen J M; Wood R J

Resumo: The DDT resistance gene RDDT1, and the dieldrin resistance gene Rd1 have been mapped on linkage group II with respect to visible markers, in the mosquito Aedes argypti L. The best interpretation of the data gives the order wa - Rdl - ds RDDT1 - s - y but was - Rdl -ds - y - s - RDDT1 is also possible. h is very loosely linked with RDDT1. The length of the linkage group has been considerably extended from previous studies.
