The formal genetics of two peptidase loci in M. robustus are presented. Both loci are autosomal but do not appear to be located on the same chromosome pair. Alleles at both loci are codominantly expressed in neonates, pouch young and adults. The application of autosomal loci segregating for three or more alleles in studies of embryonic gene expression is discussed.
