Unformatted text preview: 3. Where is the bicoid gene transcribed to form bicoid mRNA ? Write your answer below and explain why. a. in the unfertilized egg b. in the fertilized embryo c. in the ovary cells of the mother d. in the unfertilized embryo 4. The Bicoid protein binds to the promoter region of DNA and regulates express of other genes. What kind of gene regulation protein does that make Bicoid? 5. Bicoid also meets the definition of a morphogen. Look up the definition in your books glossary and write it here in your own words. The bicoid gene is transcribed in the unfertilized egg. mRNA is originated in the nurse celss, then transferred to the anterior end of the egg. A bicoid is a maternal effect gene.
