The Drosophila 78C early late puff contains E78, an ecdysone-inducible gene that encodes a novel member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily.

We report the molecular definition of an early late puff locus, at position 78C, that is inducible by ecdysone at the onset of Drosophila metamorphosis. This puff contains a single ecdysone-inducible gene consisting of two nested transcription units, E78A and E78B. E78A mRNA is expressed during a brief interval in mid-pupal development and encodes a novel member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. E78B encodes a truncated receptor isoform that lacks the DNA-binding domain and is predominantly expressed at puparium formation and immediately following E78A in pupae. E78B is directly inducible by ecdysone in late third instar larvae and depends on ecdysone-induced protein synthesis for its maximal level of expression. These observations indicate that E78 represents a distinct subset of early ecdysone-inducible regulatory genes.[1]
