Homeotic control in Drosophila; the scabrous gene is an in vivo target of Ultrabithorax proteins.
The regulatory functions of transcription factors encoded by the Ultrabithorax (Ubx) gene initiate genetic programmes essential for segmental identity and morphogenesis in Drosophila. Based on theExpand

Cell lineage‐specific expression of modulo, a dose‐dependent modifier of variegation in Drosophila.
Variegation in Drosophila is a manifest illustration of the important role played by chromatin structure in gene expression. We have isolated mutants of modulo (mod) and shown that this gene is aExpand

Modulo, a new maternally expressed Drosophila gene encodes a DNA-binding protein with distinct acidic and basic regions.
We have cloned, following an immunological screen of an expression library, five cDNA clones encoding the modulo antigen, a DNA-binding protein differentially expressed during Drosophila development.Expand

Expression of laminin and of a laminin-related antigen during early development of Drosophila melanogaster.
This paper reports the characterization of two immunologically related proteins that may be involved in cell adhesion during Drosophila development. These proteins, laminin chain A and a 240KExpand

Nuclear antigens differentially expressed during early development of Drosophila melanogaster
To obtain specific immunological probes for studying molecular events involved in gene activation during early development of Drosophila, we have produced monoclonal antibodies directed againstExpand
