  • The tissue polarity genes of Drosophila are required for correct establishment of planar polarity in epidermal structures1,2, which in the eye is shown in the mirror-image symmetric arrangement of ommatidia relative to the dorsoventral midline. Mutations in the genes frizzled (fz), dishevelled (dsh) and prickle-spiny-legs (pk-sple) result in the loss of this mirror-image symmetry3–5, fz encodes a serpentine receptor-like transmembrane protein required for reception and transmission of a… CONTINUE READING
