Figure 2

a) Anastrepha ludens mitotic metaphase chromosomes from brain ganglia of third instar male larva of the wild-type strain. b-c) Mitotic metaphases of the GSS Tapachula-7. d) Graphic representation of the Y-autosome translocation observed in the Tapachula-7 strain and its comparison with the wild-type. e-f) Mitotic metaphases of the second GSS, Tapachula -1. X, Y: represent the sex chromosomes, 2: represents the intact free autosome, Y-2: represents the translocation fragment with the Y centromere, 2-Y: represents the reciprocal translocation fragment carrying the autosomal centromere. Centromeres are indicated by circles in 2d. Bar = 10µm
