A common set of DNA regulatory elements shapes Drosophila appendages.


Animals have body parts made of similar cell types located at different axial positions, such as limbs. The identity and distinct morphology of each structure is often specified by the activity of different "master regulator" transcription factors. Although similarities in gene expression have been observed between body parts made of similar cell types, how… (More)
