    • Abstract


      The distribution of the isozymes of α-glucosidase in different parts ofDrosophila melanogaster was examined. Two of the eight glucosidase bands are associated with tarsi. The gustatory mutations in the genesgustB andgustC greatly reduce tarsal glucosidase activity, but the enzyme deficiency is not correlated with inability to taste sugars.
