The Heat Shock Response: A Model System for the Study of Gene Regulation in Drosophila
It is generally believed that development in higher organisms is controlled by sets of coordinately regulated genes, sometimes referred to as “batteries of genes”. Such gene batteries would provide the most economical explanation for cases where a single developmental stimulus, such as a hormone, seems to induce a complex but well-regulated differentiation response.
