Conservation of structure and expression of the trithorax gene between Drosophila virilis and Drosophila melanogaster.

The Drosophila melanogaster trithorax gene encodes several large RNAs which are expressed in complex patterns in the embryo. The D. virilis trithorax gene was isolated and sequenced. It produces a similar to D. melanogaster set of transcripts, and it encodes a protein that shows sequence similarity in several domains which are also conserved in human homologue, ALL-1/ HRX. Previous experiments have suggested that a distinct expression domain of trithorax in the posterior region of the embryo is required to maintain expression of the BX-C genes (Sedkov et al., 1994, Development 120, 1907-1917). At cellular blastoderm, trithorax RNA expression in D. virilis embryos is also confined to the posterior portion of the presumptive mesoderm. This finding supports the idea that the specific BX-C-related expression domain is an essential feature of the trithorax gene.[1]
