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.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene results in an increase in mean cell diameter.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against CG32343, CG7845, CG10805, CG12301, CG5114, CG5033, CG10648, CG7006, CG3071, CG1542, bys, Ski6, RpI135, l(1)G0020, ppan, Nnp-1, NHP2, or pit in combination with dsRNA against gig results in suppression of the final average cell size, with it being closer to the control average cell size, rather than the average cell size resulting from knockdown of the candidate gene alone.
S2 cells treated with dsRNA generated against this gene show reduced phagocytosis of Candida albicans compared to untreated cells.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene decreases the level of Akt1 phosphorylation, especially in response to insulin stimulation, in S2 cells.
One of 42 Drosophila genes identified as being most likely to reveal molecular and cellular mechanisms of nervous system development or plasticity relevant to human Mental Retardation disorders.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.
Area matching Drosophila EST AI456286. Probable intron in gene represented by EST AI456286.
Mutations in gig result in enhanced growth and cell size with no change in ploidy. Overall, mutant cells spend less time in G1.
gig blocks rereplication of DNA or promotes mitosis during imaginal disc development.
Study of synaptic frequency in the enlarged neurons of mutants reveals a causal relationship between cell size and synaptic number: the frequency of synaptic profiles increases as the size of terminal perimeters is increased.
'gigas' means 'giant' in Latin.
