Hedgehog directly controls initiation and propagation of retinal differentiation in the Drosophila eye.

Abstract

Patterning of the compound eye begins at the posterior edge of the eye imaginal disc and progresses anteriorly toward the disc margin. The advancing front of ommatidial differentiation is marked by the morphogenetic furrow (MF). Here we show by clonal analysis that Hedgehog (Hh), secreted from two distinct populations of cells has two distinct functions: It… (More)
