The Drosophila teashirt (tsh) gene has an homeotic function which, in combination with HOM-C genes, determines thoracic and abdominal (trunk) identities. Analysis of TSH protein distribution during embryogenesis using a specific polyclonal antibody shows that it is nuclear. The protein is present with regional modulation in several tissues within the trunk… CONTINUE READING
