Abstract

In Drosophila, the sensory mother cells of macrochaetes are chosen from among the mitotically quiescent clusters of cells in wing imaginal discs, where other cells are proliferating. The pattern of cyclin A, one of the G2 cyclins, reveals that mitotically quiescent clusters of cells are arrested in G2. When precocious mitoses are induced during sensory mother cell determination by the ectopic expression of string, a known G2/M transition regulator, the formation of sensory mother cells is disturbed, resulting in the loss of macrochaetes in the adult notum. This suggests that G2 arrest of the cell cycle ensures the proper determination of sensory mother cells.
