The dopa decarboxylase gene (Ddc) has been isolated from Drosophila virilis and introduced into the germ-line of Drosophila melanogaster by P-element mediated transformation. The integrated gene is induced at the correct stages during development with apparently normal tissue specificity, indicating that cis-acting elements required for regulation are functionally conserved between the two species. A comparison of the DNA sequences from the 5' flanking regions reveals a cluster of small (8-16… CONTINUE READING
