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: Akh CG1171
Akh protein is typical of the adipokinetic hormone family in its general structure and distribution in the fly. It is unique in containing a residue which is charged under physiological conditions.
Encodes a polypetide similar in sequence to the adipokinetic hormone of other insects.
