Drosophila endoderm development requires a novel homeobox gene which is a target of Wingless and Dpp signalling

Abstract

We have identified and cloned a novel type of homeobox gene that is composed of two homeodomains and is expressed in the Drosophila endoderm. Mutant analysis reveals that its activity is required at the foregut/midgut boundary for the development of the proventriculus. This organ regulates food passage from the foregut into the midgut and forms by the… (More)
