    Abstract

    Data are presented on a polymorphism for erythrocyte glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) in a kangaroo species. Only one of the two alleles is expressed in any individual regardless of its sex. Population and breeding data are consistent with the hypothesis of X linkage of the locus, with the paternally derived X chromosome being inactive in erythroblasts of females.
