Drosophila melanogaster misexpressing the gene tan in the pattern of the gene apterous (top) and pannier (bottom), causing ectopic melanin to form in a dorsal stripe, and ebony (center two flies), causing melanization in a W pattern on the thorax. In the background, the Tan protein sequences from three different insects are aligned with a related protein from fungi that functions in penicillin biosynthesis. Characterization of tan clarifies several long-standing mysteries in the biology of melanin pigmentation and vision in insects (see True et al.).
