The Drosophila tailless gene is a member of the orphan nuclear receptor subfamily. In Drosophila, the tailless gene is required for pattern formation in embryonic poles. During development, tailless is activated in the termini of the embryo in response to the torso receptor tyrosine kinase signal transduction cascade. Recessive mutations of tailless result in abnormalities in anterior portions of the head and in all structures posterior to the eighth abdominal segment. Localised expression of… CONTINUE READING
