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.
FlyBase curator comment: The reference to "LysE" on page 19 is a typographical error - the gene meant is LysC. See Misra, 2004.1.7, personal communication to FlyBase.
Lysozymes are expressed at a high level mainly in the digestive tract, they are not a component of the haemolymph. Lysozyme is not induced by bacteria so is not part of the inducible immune response but instead has been recruited for digestion of symbiotic bacteria in the stomach.
