The development of most epidermal sensory organs in Drosophila is controlled by achaete and scute, two of the genes of the achaete-scute complex (AS-C). The genes of the AS-C encode members of the basic-helix-loop-helix (bHLH) class of transcriptional regulators, and their activity defines proneural cell clusters in the imaginal discs from which sensory organ mother cells are singled out by a process of lateral inhibition. Ectopic expression of lethal of scute, another member of the AS-C… CONTINUE READING
