    Abstract : The small size and the lack of recombination set the fourth chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster apart from the other chromosomes. I have shown that the Minute gene on chromosome 4, earlier named Minute-4, encodes the ribosomal protein RpS3A. Two Pax6 genes, eyeless (ey) and twin of eyeless (toy) are also located on chromosome 4. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation and function of Pax-6 during head and eye development in Drosophila melanogaster

    Author : Linn Jacobsson; Åsa Rasmuson-Lestander; Uwe Walldorf; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : In Drosophila melanogaster, eyeless and twin of eyeless have important function during eye development. Mutants of both genes give a variety of eye and head phenotypes with the strongest being almost headless meaning that they lack all structures derived from the eye-antennal disc. READ MORE
