The neurogenic gene Delta of Drosophila melanogaster is expressed in neurogenic territories and encodes a putative transmembrane protein with EGF-like repeats.

Abstract

The decision of an ectodermal cell to take on a neural or an epidermal fate depends on its interactions with the neighbouring cells. In Drosophila melanogaster, the available evidence suggests that a regulatory signal necessary for epidermal commitment is built by the products of the so-called neurogenic genes. We have cloned 180 kb of genomic DNA… (More)
