Inheritance Features of Mating Behavior Components in Drosophila melanogaster and Their Significance for Fitness

Inheritance Features of Mating Behavior Components in Drosophila melanogaster and Their... Components of mating behavior of Drosophila melanogaster mutant and wild-type strains were studied with respect to fitness. The magnitude of the effect of genotype on the male mating activity, female sexual receptivity, fertility and viability was determined. Strong positive correlation was found between the male mating activity and fitness components. It was shown that mating of strains contrasting in sexual behavior features can be accompanied by both heterosis and maternal effect. Inheritance coefficients were determined for sexual behavior components. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Components of mating behavior of Drosophila melanogaster mutant and wild-type strains were studied with respect to fitness. The magnitude of the effect of genotype on the male mating activity, female sexual receptivity, fertility and viability was determined. Strong positive correlation was found between the male mating activity and fitness components. It was shown that mating of strains contrasting in sexual behavior features can be accompanied by both heterosis and maternal effect. Inheritance coefficients were determined for sexual behavior components.
