As in mammals, blood cells in Drosophila are derived from a common multipotent hematopoietic precursor population. In the embryo, these precursors are derived from the head mesoderm, whereas larval hematopoietic precursors are found in a specialized organ called the lymph gland. This shift in location of hematopoietic differentiation is reminiscent of similar events that occur during mammalian development. Recent analysis has identified several transcriptional regulators in Drosophila that… CONTINUE READING
