Abstract

Three suppressor loci for position-effect variegation, one dominant temperature-sensitive (DTS), three Minute genes, and two recessive visible mutants (ed, tkv) have been cytogenetically localized by using duplications and deficiencies in regions 23-25 of chromosome arm 2L of Drosophila melanogaster. Two of the suppressor loci studied proved to represent haplo-abnormal genes localized in regions 23A6-23F6 and 24E2-25A1, respectively. The third one is a strong triplo-abnormal suppressor mapping in 25F4-26B9 which affects white variegation in wm4h when present in three doses. The l(2)2DTS mutation, which belongs to a group of noncomplementing dominant temperature-sensitive mutations, is localized in the 25A4-B1 region. Furthermore, two Minute genes have been localized in region 24 that are included in Df(2L)M11 and can be separated employing translocation (Y;2)P8 (24E2-4): M(2)LS2 in 24D3-4-24E2-4, and M(2)z in 24E4-5-24F5-7. A third Minute gene (M(2)S1) is localized in 25C3-8-25C9-D1. The usefulness of the isolated chromosomal rearrangements for further genetic studies of region 23-26 is discussed.
