Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A complex locus in Drosophila first identified by mutations that affected the development of adult bristles. Lack of the entire complex results in the failure of neurogenesis during the embryo stage. The complex contains four ORFs that encode DNA-binding proteins that contain helix-turn-helix motifs (q.v.).
