Last week, I posted an article here that noted the availability of
a theoretical paper by Reinitz et al. on developmental aspects of
stripe formation in early embryos of Drosophila.
Now, the archive has a second, related paper: a pre-print (sans
figures, alas) of an article by Kerszberg and Changeux, scheduled
to appear in PNAS in the next few months, that approaches the same
problem from a genetic perspective.
The two papers are:
Positional_Info.* Reinitz et al. (1992) Model for cooperative
technical report control of positional information in Drosophila
figures included by bicoid and maternal hunchback.
grad.* Kerszberg and Changeux (1994) A model for
PNAS pre-print reading morphogenetic gradients: Autocatalysis
figures missing and competition at the gene level.
These two papers are available on sunsite.unc.edu via gopher (path
Ecology and Evolution/ Research papers.../ Drosophila.../) or FTP
See the README files there for abstracts and other information.
