The embryonic heart precursors of Drosophila are arranged in a repeated pattern of segmental units. There is growing evidence that the development of individual elements of this pattern depends on both mesoderm intrinsic patterning information and inductive signals from the ectoderm. In this study, we demonstrate that two homeobox genes, ladybird early and ladybird late, are involved in the cardiogenic pathway in Drosophila. Their expression is specific to a subset of cardioblast and… CONTINUE READING
