Map7/7D1 (Ens) in Drosophila is Involved in the Formation of PCP (image) Kumamoto University Share Print E-Mail Caption PCP formation was evaluated by analyzing the direction of wing hair using wing epithelial tissue of fruit fly pupa. With mutants of MAP7/7D1 (Ens in Drosophila), the direction of winged hair was not aligned, and abnormality of PCP was observed (bottom right).
