... layer within the distal procuticle. Surprisingly, this tight localization depends on the multi-ligand endocytic receptor Megalin (Mgl). Mgl acts, in part, by promoting endocytic clearance of Yellow. Yellow is required for black melanin formation, and its synthesis begins as cuticle is secreted. Near...

... patterns are largely unknown. We demonstrate that the regulation and function of the yellow and ebony genes in Drosophila melanogaster play crucial roles in this process. The Yellow protein is required to produce black melanin, and is expressed in a pattern that correlates with the distribution...
