During third-instar larval development of Drosophila melanogaster, the fat body tissue synthesizes six major methionine-containing polypeptides, three of which are the alpha, beta, and gamma subunits of the hexameric larval serum protein LSP-1, a fourth is the single subunit of the hexameric larval serum protein LSP-2, and the other two are polypeptides P6 and P1. Genomic DNA clones of the six structural genes for the polypeptides were isolated and characterized. Each gene maps by in situ… CONTINUE READING
