The effect of expression of the enzyme producing nitric oxide on Drosophila melanogaster morphogenesis was studied using ectopic expression of a truncated splice form of the enzyme that has a dominant negative effect on the full-length enzyme form. The suppressed enzyme expression was shown to affect the cell polarity and movement as well as the structural pattern of organs during Drosophila development. The effect of nitric oxide production on the intercellular distribution of significant factors of cell polarity, protein products of the Strabismus and Prospero genes, has been revealed.
