Distinct electrophoretic polymorphism pattern at alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) locus of Drosophila melanogaster natural populations from Turkey

Distinct electrophoretic polymorphism pattern at alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) locus of Drosophila... Small number of Drosophila melanogaster populations from two distinct geographical regions of Turkey, Central Anatolia and Black Sea, were studied. Populations sampled were electrophoresed for a single locus, alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) to assess population differentiation. Both the magnitude of genetic differentiation levels and the population structure based on hierarchical F-statistics allow populations to be grouped on two genetically divergent area, Central Anatolian and Black Sea. One ecological correlate, average yearly maximum rainfall, R year, seems to track this Adh genetic variation pattern. The study also shows that a typical pattern of geographical Adh polymorphism can emerge with a handfull of populations sampled across a relatively small distance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Small number of Drosophila melanogaster populations from two distinct geographical regions of Turkey, Central Anatolia and Black Sea, were studied. Populations sampled were electrophoresed for a single locus, alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) to assess population differentiation. Both the magnitude of genetic differentiation levels and the population structure based on hierarchical F-statistics allow populations to be grouped on two genetically divergent area, Central Anatolian and Black Sea. One ecological correlate, average yearly maximum rainfall, R year, seems to track this Adh genetic variation pattern. The study also shows that a typical pattern of geographical Adh polymorphism can emerge with a handfull of populations sampled across a relatively small distance.
