2 possible functions of Notch in arthropod segmentation

• Vertebrate clock-and-wave model
• Drosophila model - mutual restriction of pair-rule expression

32

Notch in arthropods

• synchronizes gene expression at border formation --> sharp stripe
• mutual repression of pair-rule stripes

33

Notch is in border formation where

segments form
