A survey of 29 laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster for glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT) variation revealed that the Got 1 locus was polymorphic in three stocks recently collected from nature. The Got 1 locus was fixed for the same allozyme in the remaining 26 laboratory populations. Testcross matings to multiply marked stocks established that Got 1 is located at 4.8 centimorgans on chromosome 2.
