A 200 kD rod protein is detected in western blots of extracts of Schneider L2 tissue culture cells and of larval brains. rod protein localizes in similar dynamic patterns in meiotic spermatocytes and in mitotic neuroblasts from third larval instar brains. The protein localizes to kinetochores at prometaphase, is found in kinetochores and kinetochore microtubule fibers at metaphase, and once again localizes to kinetochores at anaphase.

Please Note FlyBase no longer curates genomic clone accessions so this list may not be complete
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.
Source for identity of: rod CG1569
Source for merge of: rod EP3408
Source for merge of rod EP3408 was that EP3408 insertion is within rod (and in the right orientation) ( date:040519 ).
