The location, modification, and function of the fushi tarazu protein during Drosophila embryogenesis.


The fushi tarazu (ftz) protein of Drosophila is required during embryogenesis for the process of body segmentation. In order to study the biochemical properties of the ftz protein, ftz cDNA was expressed in E. coli, and the protein purified to homogeneity. Polyclonal antibodies raised against the purified protein were used to localize and quantitate the… (More)
