A survey of laboratory strains of Anopheles stephensi for nonspecific esterases by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis revealed 10 zones of esterase activity. In 3 of the 10 zones, three electromorphs were observed. Genetic analysis revealed that these three zones are controlled by three loci, viz., Est-3, Est-4, and Est-5, and that the electromorphs are codominant alleles at each locus. The three esterase loci were found linked to each other and to an autosomal marker colorless-eye. The esterase loci have tentatively been placed in linkage group II. The probable gene sequence on chromosome 2 is either c-Est-3-Est-4-Est-5 or c-Est-4-Est-3-Est-5.
