Abstract

Expression of two abundant mRNAs in the fat body of third instar larvae of Sarcophaga peregrina was studied using genomic clones of storage protein and 25K protein as probes. It was found that these two genes were expressed sequentially in the third instar with a 20-hr interval between their expressions. No amplification of genes was detected during larval development, suggesting that the high level of mRNA was due to efficient transcription. The contents of the two mRNAs in third instar larvae were about the same, although the synthesis of storage protein was much more than that of 25K protein.
