nvy is expressed in a complex and dynamic pattern. It is restricted to precursors of the central and peripheral nervous system. At certain stages, nvy is expressed in more cells or at higher levels in thoracic segments than in abdominal segments. These stages are separated by stages in which the expression pattern is the same in all segments. In later embryos, most of the nvy-expressing cells are in the posterior compartments of segments. nvy was shown to be induced by ubiquitous Ubx expression. nvy expression in various homeotic mutant backgrounds was also described.

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 has been made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene. RNAi of nvy results in increased arborization of ddaD and ddaE neurons. RNAi also causes defects in muscle, defects in dendrite morphogenesis and reproducible defects in da dendrite development.
nvy couples cAMP-PKA signaling to plexA to regulate Sema-1a-mediated axon repulsion. nvy and Sema-1a function in the same signaling pathway but have opposing effects. nvy acts downstream of Sema-1a to regulate repulsive axon guidance.
