Drosophila melanogaster embryos at the cellular blastoderm stage were irradiated with a uV laser microbeam (257 nm, 7 erg) of 20-q diameter. Depending on the site of irradiation, up to 90% of the resulting first-instar larvae showed defects in the integument. The location of the defects within the cuticular pattern corresponded closely to the site of irradiation. The data indicate that the anlagen for the left and right parts of the larval epidermis are separated ventrally and each occupies an… CONTINUE READING
