Title

Inherited sterility among Agrotis ipsilon laboratory population, exposed to gamma irradiation.

Year

1984

Source

Insect Sci. and Application, 5(6):501-503.

Abstract

Irradiated full-grown pupae of A. ipsilon with 50 or 100 Gy gamma radiation and crossed with unirradiated females. The F 1 progeny were more sterile than parents. The percentage of mated females of the F1 generation was greatly reduced while the mating frequency was increased. There were fewer inseminated females among the F1, particularly when the female inherited the sterility. The mortality among larvae of the F1 generation was high and dose-dependent, and that among F2 larvae was even higher. The sex ratio of the F1 progeny was altered in favor of males, while that of the F2 was normal; 100 Gy applied to P1 males were sufficient to inhibit hatching of the eggs produced by F1 adults.
