Differential expression during embryogenesis of three genes clustered in the Ras1 region of Drosophila melanogaster.


Transcription mapping and nucleotide sequence analysis reveal that the genomic region of the Drosophila Ras1 gene contains a cluster of three closely localized genes. A gene termed Rlb1 is located nearby and upstream of Ras1, and is oriented in the opposite polarity relative to Ras1. In addition, a third gene termed Rlc1, is found at a very close proximity… (More)
