Abstract

We have cloned the paired gene of Drosophila melanogaster, a pair-rule gene required for the establishment of proper segmentation. The transcriptional pattern in young embryos shows developmental polarities along the antero-posterior and dorso-ventral axes. Transcripts, initially expressed with a double-segment periodicity, switch to a single-segment repeat during syncytial blastoderm.
