The engrailed (en) mutation leads to the transformation of the posterior structures of the dorsal mesothoracic disc into those characteristic of the anterior region of the same disc. Similar posterior-anterior duplications have been detected in dorsal as well as ventral structures of all the thoracic segments. -Genetic combinations of en with other pattern mutants have shown their synergistic effect on the posterior wing pattern.-A clonal analysis of the en wing disc shows that en affects its… CONTINUE READING
