Bolwig's organ is the larval light-sensing system consisting of 12 photoreceptors and its development requires atonal activity. Here, we showed that Bolwig's organ formation and atonal expression are controlled by the concerted function of hedgehog, eyes absent and sine oculis. Bolwig's organ primordium was first detected as a cluster of about 14 Atonal-positive cells at the posterior edge of the ocular segment in embryos and hence, atonal expression may define the region from which a few… CONTINUE READING
