  • a Introgression lines obtained by repeated backcrossing of Antp73b for 10 generations to the corresponding wwwt line (WA, world wide wild type/Antp) or aawt line (AA, Ann Arbor wild type/Antp).

  • b Scores were obtained two and three generations after the completion of the introgression, for the distal (claw, metatarsus, and tarsus) and proximal (tibia, femur, and trochanter) transformations, as described in the text.
