Extensive zygotic control of the anteroposterior axis in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis



Extensive zygotic control of the anteroposterior axis in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis



Development 126(4): 701-710



Insect axis formation is best understood in Drosophila melanogaster, where rapid anteroposterior patterning of zygotic determinants is directed by maternal gene products. The earliest zygotic control is by gap genes, which determine regions of several contiguous segments and are largely conserved in insects. It was asked genetically whether early zygotic patterning genes control similar anteroposterior domains in N. vitripennis as in Drosophila.
