Anterior-posterior axis specification in Drosophila oocytes: identification of novel bicoid and oskar mRNA localization factors.


The Drosophila melanogaster anterior-posterior axis is established during oogenesis by the localization of bicoid and oskar mRNAs to the anterior and posterior poles of the oocyte. Although genetic screens have identified some trans-acting factors required for the localization of these transcripts, other factors may have been missed because they also… (More)
