Dynamics of mitochondrial polymorphism in a natural population of Drosophila littoralis

Dynamics of mitochondrial polymorphism in a natural population of Drosophila littoralis During seven years, we observed stable mtDNA polymorphism in a local population of Drosophila littoralis. Using RFLP, a number of mitochondrial haplotypes were revealed, two of which were the core and in condition of stable equilibrium. To explain the absence of fixation of one haplotype, we checked a hypothesis that the D. littoralis population had a complex structure, being subdivided into several partially isolated races existing on the same territory. Analysis of highly hypervariable nuclear sequence of retrotransposons Tv1 showed positive correlation of the mitochondrial haplotype with a particular allelic form of Tv1. This supports the proposal that the D. littoralis natural population forms the population system consisting of genetically differentiated races. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

During seven years, we observed stable mtDNA polymorphism in a local population of Drosophila littoralis. Using RFLP, a number of mitochondrial haplotypes were revealed, two of which were the core and in condition of stable equilibrium. To explain the absence of fixation of one haplotype, we checked a hypothesis that the D. littoralis population had a complex structure, being subdivided into several partially isolated races existing on the same territory. Analysis of highly hypervariable nuclear sequence of retrotransposons Tv1 showed positive correlation of the mitochondrial haplotype with a particular allelic form of Tv1. This supports the proposal that the D. littoralis natural population forms the population system consisting of genetically differentiated races.
