Direct control of antennal identity by the spineless-aristapedia gene of Drosophila

Abstract

Loss-of-function mutations in the spineless-aristapedia gene of Drosophila (ss a mutants) cause transformations of the distal antenna to distal second leg, deletions or fusions of the tarsi from all three legs, a general reduction in bristle size, and sterility. Because ss a mutants are pleiotropic, it has been suggested that ss + has some rather general… (More)
