During my involvement in setting up a research network, it came to my
notice that a sex-linked mutant called Texas clearbody was developed in
the USA. If I am well informed this mutation already appeared in the late
I would like to suggest that this gene is an allele of the sex-linked ino
My conclusion is based on the fact that cocks of the genotype inopd/ino, both alleles recessive to ino+, are clearbodies. Therefore the symbol inopd for sex-linked clearbody (pallid) is proposed.
