The Broad-Complex, a 20-hydroxyecdysone-regulated gene, is essential for the development of many tissues during metamorphosis. In Broad-Complex mutants of the rbp complementation group, dorsoventral indirect flight muscles (DVM) are largely absent, and the dorsal longitudinal indirect flight muscles, tergotrochanteral muscles, and remaining DVM often select(More)
The Drosophila melanogaster broad locus is essential for normal metamorphic development. Broad encodes three genetically distinct functions (rbp, br, and 2Bc) and a family of four zinc-finger DNA-binding proteins (Z1-Z4). The Z1, Z2, and Z3 protein isoforms are primarily associated with the rbp, br, and 2Bc genetic functions respectively. The Z4 protein(More)
