• hindgut
  • Expression domain of brk during early blastodermal stages is defined through antagonistic interaction with dpp , and expression domains of dpp and brk in the early blastoderm include prospective hindgut domain. (sdbonline.org)
  • Nanos
  • Both embryonically-transcribed hunchback and maternally-transcribed hunchback are activated by bicoid protein in the anterior and is inhibited in the posterior by nanos protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • segments
  • The trunk is formed by three thoracic (prothorax, mesothorax and metathorax) and eight abdominal segments (A1 to A8), each characterised in the larva by alternating anterior denticles and posterior naked cuticle. (biologists.org)
  • homeodomain
  • The comparison of their homeodomain sequences groups Hox proteins into Anterior, Central and Posterior classes, reflecting their expression patterns in the head, trunk and tail, respectively. (biologists.org)
  • autonomous
  • In addition,to its cell autonomous role in specifying posterior compartment identity, engrailed also has a non-cell autonomous function in the general growth and patterning of the wing disc, through the activation of signaling pathways such as Hedgehog (Hh) and Decapentaplegic (Dpp). (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Along with this, it has been found that as Cdx dosage decreases, modification of Wnt signaling, and timing of Hox expression causes both neurological and skeletal defects in the posterior vertebra. (wikipedia.org)
