Top–DER- and Dpp-dependent requirements for the Drosophila fos/kayak gene in follicular epithelium morphogenesis


The Drosophila fos (Dfos)/kayak gene has been previously identified as a key regulator of epithelial cell morphogenesis during dorsal closure of the embryo and fusion of the adult thorax. We show here that it is also required for two morphogenetic movements of the follicular epithelium during oogenesis. Firstly, it is necessary for the proper posteriorward… (More)
