Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.

"p230", "p250" and "p300" do not correspond to "E(bx)".
dsRNA has been made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene. RNAi of E(bx) results in increased arborization of ddaD and ddaE neurons, defects in dendrite morphogenesis and reproducible defects in da dendrite development.
E(bx) is required for induction of the heat shock genes and has additional functions during larval blood development.
E(bx) is a component of the NURF complex that is both necessary and sufficient for accurate and efficient nucleosome sliding. It interacts with sequence-specific transcription factors, providing a basis for targeted recruitment of the NURF complex to specific genes.
NURF, a protein complex of four subunits Caf1, Nurf-38, E(bx) and Iswi, is able to facilitate transcription mediated by a Scer\GAL4 derivative carrying a constitutively activating region from Hsf. Once nucleosome remodelling by the DNA binding factor is accomplished a high level of NURF activity is not continuously required for recruitment of the general transcription machinery and transcription initiation. NURF is able to assist gene activation in a chromatin context: remodel nucleosomes for gene activation in chromatin.
