The development and patterning of the Drosophila wing relies on interactions between cell populations that have the anteroposterior (AP) axis and dorsoventral (DV) axis of the wing imaginal disc as frames of reference [1-3]. Each of these cell populations gives rise to a compartment - a group of cells that have their fates restricted by cell lineage - within which cells acquire specific identities through the expression of 'selector' genes [1,2,4]. The genes engrailed (en) and invected (inv… CONTINUE READING
