Abstract

Recently, there has been significant progress in advancing understanding of Drosophila homeotic function: including the different mechanisms of activation and maintenance of homeotic gene expression; the phenomenon of phenotypic suppression; and the search for genes downstream of the homeotic genes. Comparison between Drosophila and other species suggests a common functional organization of homeotic complexes in the animal kingdom.
