  • The five genes that were analyzed further because their sequences indicated possible roles in the process of mesoderm spreading are shown in bold. *Indicates the fold of change of expression in how germline clone mutant embryos compared with wild type. Conserved, HOW response element location is conserved between D. melanogaster and D. pseudoobscura; DM only, HOW response element appears only in D. melanogaster; DP only, HOW response element appears only in D. pseudoobscura.
