bz-m918505

--Peter A. Peterson

This mutable allele also arose in a cross similar to bz-m918501 when Uq-I159 was the only introduced transposon. Unlike the two bz-m previously described, this one has a relatively dark background expression with a low frequency of spots. Because this was a bz-spotted exception that was planted, and this plant was backcrossed by bz sh, the appearance of colored progeny as shown in this Table are unexpected.

The near equal frequency of colored and spotted round indicates the possibility of an insert that is not suppressible.
