IN insect imaginal disks the basis for determination may be the state of a series of loci, each switched on or off in a given cell lineage at a unique point in development known as a compartmentalisation event1. Clones induced after the blastoderm stage define homologous anterior and posterior compartments in the thoracic disks2. Bithorax mutants transform the anterior compartments of the metathoracic disks (haltere and third leg) into those of the mesothorax (wing and second leg); however, a… CONTINUE READING
