The homoeotic transformations caused by bxd are described in detail. The anterior histoblast nests of the first abdominal segment are missing, and are replaced by one or two leg discs ventrally. Mainly anterior compartment patterns are found in the ectopic, abdominal legs of adult flies. However, cell lineage analyses show that both anterior and posterior polyclones are established early in the development of these ectopic legs, but the posterior polyclone is smaller. Cells of the anterior… CONTINUE READING
