LysX transcripts rise dramatically in the late third instar and decrease gradually in pupae to reach a low level in adults, They are present at very low levels in embryos and earlier larvae. They are detected primarily in the metamorphosing midgut of late larvae and early pupae by in situ hybridization.

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.
Identified as a gene with significant level of mRNA cycling as assessed by expression analysis using high density oligonucleotide arrays with probe generated from adult heads harvested over six time points over the course of a day. Shows alteration in expression in a Clk mutant background.
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.
