Similarities between trunk and spätzle, putative extracellular ligands specifying body pattern in Drosophila.

Abstract

The basic body plan of Drosophila is specified by four determinant systems that organize pattern along the anteroposterior and dorsoventral axes. Two of these systems (anterior and posterior) depend on localized mRNAs. In contrast, the other two (ventral and terminal) require locally generated extracellular ligands that are transduced, respectively, by the… (More)
