We report the molecular cloning of Drosophila genes encoding putative lipase homologs, Dm lip1, lip2 and lip3, the definition of their structure and the expression patterns during development. These Drosophila lipases are related to acid lipases, with a common GHSQG motif, within a more general consensus GXSXG, identified as the active site shared by all the members of lipase superfamily. The lip1 and lip3 genes are transcribed in different tissues and developmental stages, suggesting that they… CONTINUE READING
