As a molecular marker for head specification in Hydra, we have cloned an epithelial cell-specific gene which responds to early signals of head formation. The gene, designated ks1, encodes a 217-amino acid protein lacking significant sequence similarity to any known protein. KS1 contains a N-terminal signal sequence and is rich in charged residues which are clustered in several domains. ks1 is expressed in tentacle-specific epithelial cells (battery cells) as well as in a small fraction of… CONTINUE READING
