The transcription factor GAGA, encoded by the gene Trl, controls expression of many Drosophila melanogaster genes. We have compiled the presently largest sample (120 sites) of published nucleotide sequences with experimentally confirmed binding to GAGA protein. Analysis of the sample has demonstrated that despite an apparent structural diversity of the GAGA(More)
The development of dorsal appendages of the chorion (specialized structures in the D. melanogaster egg which look like elastic tubes and ensure the breathing of the developing embryo) is an attractive model for the study of genetic mechanisms of the development of organs and tissues, whose generation is based on transformation of the epithelial tissue in(More)
Insects are surprising in the size and diversity of taxa, members of which are considered to be one of the best-adapted and most evolutionary successful living organisms. Insects are characterized by diversity and an abundance of adaptations to environmental conditions; the members of this class occupied different ecological niches, and it is possible to(More)
