Figure 1 compares the presence of various eye pigments found in both male and female Drosophila melanogaster by means of a 4-panelled bar graph. Eye pigments of five female and male mutant flies are compared to that of the wild type using R f values (y-axis) from a chromatogram. The wild type (+) and only three of the five mutants are compared; brown (bw), scarlet (st), and rosy (ry). These four displayed pigments in both UV and visible light. No pigments were observed for white (w) and brown/scarlet (bw/st) eye mutations, and as a result were not included in the graph. Each panel displays R f values correlating to the 7 different pigments observed; ommochrome, drosopterin, isoxanthopterin, xanthopterin, sepiapterin, 2-amino-4-hydroxypterine and biopterin. Panel A and B compare R f values of the pigments of the four different male and female flies under UV light, whereas C and D make the same comparison for pigments observed under visible light. Panel A compares the eye pigments of wild type (+), brown (bw), scarlet (st) and rosy (ry)
