The odd-skipped (odd) gene is required to generate anterior regions of the odd-numbered segments in Drosophila; homozygous embryos show pattern deletions that are always less than a segment in width and are associated with mirror-image duplications of adjacent regions. To define further the role of odd and determine how it interacts with other segmentation genes, we have described the effects of combining odd with mutations at other pair-rule loci. We have observed phenotypic suppression in… CONTINUE READING
