The NK-2 Homeobox Gene and the Early Development of the Central Nervous System of Drosophila
Description:
In this article, Marshall Nirenberg explains the "logic that connects the genetic code to neurobiology is that information is processed in both genetic and neural systems." This study of the NK-2 homeobox gene of the Drosophila fly examines the role of the gene's expression in the early development of the central nervous system of the embryo. Strikingly, the article notes, "The nucleus of the fertilized Drosophila embryo undergoes thirteen rounds of nuclear division in the first 130 minutes of embryonic development, resulting in an embryo that consists of a single cell with approximately 5,000 nuclei."
