fushi tarazu gene

A gene found in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Normal fruit fly embryos look like a series of stacked discs, which are called segments. Each segment eventually develops into specific adult fly structures (wings, antennae, legs, eyes, etc.) Flies which have a mutant form of the ftz gene are missing every other segment.
