The Drosophila serendipity alpha (sry alpha) gene is specifically transcribed at the blastoderm stage, from nuclear cycle 11 to the onset of gastrulation, in all somatic nuclei. This pattern of transcription and a zygotic cellularization defect observed in embryos homozygous for Df(3R)X3F, a deficiency covering the sry locus, suggest that sry alpha plays a role in the cellularization of the syncytial blastoderm embryo. P-element rescue experiments show that one copy of the sry alpha gene… CONTINUE READING
