Patterning by cell recruitment in the Drosophila eye

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 1991 Aug;1(2):268-74. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(05)80081-4.

Abstract

Patterning of the retinal epithelium in insects involves cellular interactions. Recent molecular genetic characterization of these interactions in Drosophila and some emerging principles of how cell fate is determined in this system are the subject of this review.
