    ..This pair-rule gene circuit provides insight into short-germ segmentation in Tribolium that may be more generally applicable to segmentation in other arthropods. ..

    ..Thus, while prd is functionally conserved, the fact that the register of slp function has evolved differently in the lineages leading to Drosophila and Tribolium reveals an unprecedented flexibility in pair-rule patterning...
