The homeotic selector (HOM) proteins are required for the diversification of the anterior-posterior axis of the Drosophila body plan, assigning unique identities to regional domains of cells comprising one or a few parasegments or segments. The HOM proteins apparently accomplish this task by the transcriptional regulation of numerous downstream genes. At present few downstream genes are known, so models of how downstream genes mediate HOM functions are based more on intuition than information… CONTINUE READING
