Almost all knowledge of the regulation of seg-mentation genes in arthropods comes from Drosophila. In order to study the regulation of the segment-polarity gene engrailed in a non-insect arthropod we focussed on puta-tive regulatory regions of the engrailed.a (en.a) gene in the barnacle crustacean Sacculina carcini. In this animal, en.a is expresse...

SUMMARY In Metazoa, Hox genes control the identity of the body parts along the anteroposterior axis. In addition to this ho-meotic function, these genes are characterized by two conserved features: They are clustered in the genome, and they contain a particular sequence, the homeobox, encoding a DNA-binding domain. Analysis of Hox homeobox sequence...
