New allozyme variability in Italian honey bees

W. S. Sheppard, S. H. Berlocher

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Adult workers of the honey bee, Apis mellifera ligustica, from Italy were assayed for enzyme polymorphism using a variety of electrophoretic conditions. Three polymorphic enzyme systems are described, two of which, malic enzyme and an esterase, were previously unknown in indigenous A. m. ligustica. In addition, a new allozyme for the Mdh locus is reported.
