Is tb*-8963 really an allele of tb1?
--Jackson, JD

The COOP's tb*-8963 mutant, on chromosome 1, was allele tested with tb1-ref, which traces back to Burnham (MNL 33:74, 1959). A positive test was observed. The tb*-8963 mutant can be traced back to an E. G. Anderson 1957 stock. If anyone has further information concerning the origin of these two mutants or similar stocks please forward to the Stock Center.
