Fig. 5

Comparative distribution for some ventral–lateral genes between M. domestica and D. melanogaster. Images show the mRNA distribution during cellularization stages, for vnd and snail transcripts, observed by in situ hybridization during cellularization of M. domestica. In panels a, b, lateral and ventral–lateral views of the expression of ventral nervous system defective (vnd) are shown. Panels c, d, show a lateral and dorsal view of the expression of snail transcription factor. In all the images, embryos are oriented with the anterior region to the right
