In this review, I describe recent progress toward understanding the developmental genetics governing formation of the Drosophila auditory apparatus. The Drosophila auditory organ, Johnston's organ, is housed in the antenna. Intriguingly, key genes needed for specification or function of auditory cell types in the Drosophila antenna also are required for normal development or function of the vertebrate ear. These genes include distal-less, spalt and spalt-related, atonal, crinkled, nanchung and… CONTINUE READING
