Diverse expression of overlapping genes: the Drosophila Eip28/29 gene and its upstream neighbors.

The Eip28/29 gene of Drosophila is known to be regulated by the steroid hormone ecdysone in Kc cells and other cell lines. An investigation of Eip28/29 gene expression in intact animals has led to the discovery of two new genes on its 5' flank. Together these three genes generate at least seven distinct transcripts with diverse patterns of developmental… CONTINUE READING
