In many animal groups, the interaction between germ and somatic line is required for germ-line development. In Drosophila, the germ-line precursors (pole cells) formed at the posterior tip of the embryos migrate toward the mesodermal layer where they adhere to the dorsolateral mesoderm, which ensheaths the pole cells to form the embryonic gonads. These mesodermal cells may control the expression of genes that function in pole cells for their development into germ cells. However, such downstream… CONTINUE READING
