The cubitus interruptus Dominant 4-O [ciD] locus is a member of a class of genes required for the proper formation of the repeating segmental pattern of the embryo. We have found a second locus on the fourth chromosome, Cell (Ce), which is also required for proper segmentation. Mutations in Ce cause the elimination of the posterior half and anterior margin of each segment. The complementation pattern of ciD and Ce alleles is complicated; certain alleles complement fully while others do not. We… CONTINUE READING
