Electrophoretic separation of esterase 5 allozymes of Drosophila pseudoobscura in gels of different acrylamide concentrations and in different buffer systems has revealed the existence of six different alleles within the most frequent class, esterase 51.00 and three alleles in the other most frequent class, esterase 51.07. Two of the alleles affect subunit binding. Esterase 5 allozyme classes based on electrophoresis in 5% acrylamide gels are therefore highly heterogeneous.
