There is considerable interest in the developmental, temporal and tissue-specific patterns of DNA replication in metazoans. Site-specific DNA replication at the chorion loci in Drosophila follicle cells leads to extensive gene amplification, and the organization of the cis-acting DNA elements that regulate this process may provide a model for how such(More)
The full complement of proteins required for the proper regulation of genome duplication are yet to be described. We employ a genetic DNA-replication model system based on developmental amplification of Drosophila eggshell (chorion) genes [1]. Hypomorphic mutations in essential DNA replication genes result in a distinct thin-eggshell phenotype owing to(More)
