Our results demonstrate that the normal function of the engrailed (en) gene is required for the maintenance of the straight boundary between cells of the anterior and posterior compartments in the wing of Drosophila. We suggest that the activity of the engrailed gene is restricted to the posterior compartment where it ‘labels’ cells so that they do not mix with anterior cells during growth.
