Abstract

Thin film chromatographic pteridine analyses were made of the heads of inbred Oregon-R wild type, white and white-honey adult flies isogenic for an Oregon-R background. Flies were of successive ages between 1 and 32 days. Differences due to the action of the single alleles were found. Several differences were found which may correlate with developmental changes in enzymatic pathway and with reproductive cyclic activity. Pteridines were found which have not previously been reported for white or white-honey flies. Thin film chromatography plus photographic densitometric method appear to permit more sensitive analysis than do methods depending ultimately on visual identification.
