The body pattern along the anterior-posterior axis of the insect embryo is thought to be established by two organizing centres localized at the ends of the egg1. Genetic analysis of the polarity-organizing centres in Drosophila has identified three distinct classes of maternal effect genes that organize the anterior, pos-terior and terminal pattern elements of the embryo2. The factors provided by these gene classes specify the patterns of expression of the segmentation genes at defined… CONTINUE READING
