Abstract

Chromosomal DNA replication machinery is essential for growth of all cells in all organs in multicellular organisms. Its knockdown in several tissues of Drosophila led to rough eye phenotype and the loss of bristles in the eye. These results show that the DNA replication machinery contributes to the body development independent of growth.
