Homoeotic transformation of antennae, halters and hind legs was studied in simple Nasobemia (Ns), Antennapedia (Antp49, Antp50) and bithorax (bx, bx34e, Ubx) stocks and in pairwise combined Ns (or Antp) - bx stocks. In combined Antp49 - bx stocks both the antenna to leg and halter to wing transformation was more complete, as compared to either of the simple stocks. In combined Antp50-bx stocks transformation of antennae was expressed better than that of metathoracs. In Ns-bx transformation of halter is more efficient than that of antennae. Possible existence of common steps in genetic control of antennal and thoracic anlage development is discussed.
