A 36 kilobase (kb) DNA segment of the Drosophila genome that contains several larval cuticle protein genes has been cloned and characterized. This segment maps at chromosomal locus 44D. It contains five genes, all of which are expressed at the same time of Drosophila development. Four of the genes are clustered within 7.9 kb of DNA and are abundantly expressed as poly(A)RNA in the epidermis of late third instar larvae but are not abundantly expressed in other developmental stages. A fifth gene… CONTINUE READING
