Developmental Genetics of Drosophila

Cover legend

Selector gene expression in the haltere (left) and wing (right) imaginal discs of Drosophila melanogaster. In both discs, cells within the dorsal compartment express the apterous gene (pink), while cells in the anterior compartment express the cubitus interruptus gene (green). The cells that will give rise to the flight appendages express and require the vestigial gene (blue/pink). The differences in the size and future pattern of the haltere are regulated by the Ultrabithorax homeotic selector gene (expression not shown).
