  1. Gene names (with commonly used synonyms in some cases) and their usual abbreviation are as reported in FlyBase [79,80], except those marked by an asterisk. In these cases, we propose names based on the orthology relationships with well-characterized vertebrate genes. Identification numbers are those from the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project [81]. Sequences are listed with the family in which there are included (or stated as orphan genes), their chromosomal localization (position on the polytene chromosomes map as found in FlyBase), and their accession number. The 'orphan' gene Delilah clearly belongs to the high-order group A and is most probably a highly divergent NeuroD family gene (see [8] for discussion).
