Proneural genes are activated in equivalence groups of neuroectoderm cells Achaete-scute complex (AS-C) AS-C genes are activated in proneural clusters AS-C genes are regulated by A-P and D-V genes AS-C genes encode basic helix-loop- helix transcription

Unformatted text preview: Asymmetric divisions of a neuroblast Asymmetric divisions of a neuroblast Adult organs arise from imaginal discs Development of ommatidia: morphogenetic furrow Photoreceptor cells are specified by cell-cell interactions R7 is specified by sevenless and Bride-of-sevenless eyeless/Pax6 : a master regulatory gene for eye development eyeless/Pax6 : a master regulatory gene for eye development Key concepts Lateral inhibition allows only one from a group of equivalent cells to adopt a specific fate Lateral inhibition is used to achieve appropriate spacing of differentiated cells The Notch receptor is a critical component of lateral inhibition Neuroblasts divide asymmetrically to give rise to neuroblasts and GMCs Photoreceptors are specified by sequential recruitment via cell-cell interactions Eye development in animals is initiated by the highly conserved eyeless/Pax6 genes...
