ImpL2 is expressed in anterior cells of the tracheal pit and in cells immediately dorsal to the pit invagination. It is expressed only in a subset of cells in the tracheal primordium.
ImpL2 transcripts are not detected until 4hr of embyronic development on northern blots. By in situ hybridization, they are detected in blastoderm embryos in a pair-rule-like pattern of seven stripes. The stripes extend through the neurogenic and dorsal epidermal regions but not extend to the presumptive mesoderm or amnioserosa. At stage 8, 14 broad bands are seen in the neurogenic ectoderm. At stage 9, strong expression is seen surrounding the tracheal pits. During stages 15-16, ImpL2 transcripts are detected in the pharynx, frontal sac, the esophagus, surrounding the posterior spiracles, and the lateral bipolar dendrite neurons. By stage 17, they are limited to the lateral bipolar dendrite neurons and other structures that show accumulation of protein.
ImpL2 protein is weakly detected in embryonic extracts from 2-4hrs and a stronger signal is seen in 4-6hr and 6-8hr embryos. No localized ImpL2 protein was detected until stage 16 at which time a segmentally repeated pattern of staining in the lateral region is observed. The stained cells in the abdominal segments were identified as the lateral bipolar dendrite neurons. In the thoracic segments, similarly positioned neuronal cell bodies and their axons were stained but their identity is uncertain. They are probably multiple dendritic neurons. Staining is also observed in two neurons adjacent to the pharynx, in two cell clusters on the dorsolateral surface of the optic lobes, and in a localized area of the cephalic region.

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.
In a sample of 79 genes with multiple introns, 33 showed significant heterogeneity in G+C content among introns of the same gene and significant positive correspondence between the intron and the third codon position G+C content within genes. These results are consistent with selection adding against preferred codons at the start of genes.
Temporal profile of gene expression is altered in Eip74EF mutant background.
Encodes a transcript associated with membrane-bound polysomes in imaginal discs and expressed only in response to 20-hydroxyecdysone (20 HOE). Expression studied both in vitro and in vivo. A 'late' gene involved in the eversion to the exterior of the elongated regions of discs by means of local changes in cell shape (Osterbur, Fristrom, Natzle, Tojo and Fristrom, 1988).
