During development, muscles must form and attach at highly stereotyped positions to allow for coordinated movements. In Drosophila, muscles grow towards and attach to specifically positioned cells within the epidermis. At the molecular level, very little is known about how muscles recognize these attachment sites. The derailed gene encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase family member that is essential for the pathfinding ability of expressing neurons. Here we show that the Drl RTK is also expressed… CONTINUE READING
