The yellow locus in Drosophila is involved in both cuticle development and behaviour. However, the function of the encoded protein is unknown. Here we have characterised the sequence and expression pattern of a new Drosophila gene, designated yellow-B, encoding a 453-amino-acid protein that is 57% identical to Yellow. High levels of yellow-B mRNA are present in the larval-pupal stages, but the gene is also expressed in the head. Bioinformatics analysis indicates that the Drosophila genome...[Show more]
