Mediation of Drosophila head development by gap-like segmentation genes

  title={Mediation of Drosophila head development by gap-like segmentation genes},
  author={Stephen Michael Cohen and Gerd J{\"u}rgens},
THE first phase of embryonic development in Drosophila consists of the elaboration and interpretation of maternally encoded information that specifies spatial pattern in the embryo1. The product of the maternal gene bicoid (bcd) is thought to organize the anterior pattern of the embryo2. Although the bed transcript is localized at the anterior pole of the egg3,4 the bed protein forms a stable concentration gradient through the anterior two thirds of the embryo5. The graded distribution of bed… CONTINUE READING
