The polycomb-group genes, a set of genes characterized by mutations that cause similar phenotypes and dosage-dependent interactions, are required for the normal expression of segment-specific homeotic loci. Here we report that polycombeotic (formerly 1(3)1902), originally identified by a lethal mutation that causes a small-disc phenotype, is also a member of this group of essential genes. Adults homozygous for temperature-sensitive pco alleles that were exposed to the restrictive temperature… CONTINUE READING
