Rbp4 protein is detected in the testis. No staining is observed in the germ line stem cells at the apical tip of the testis. Rbp4 protein is first detected in young primary spermatocytes and continues to accumulate as the spermatocytes develop. The highest levels are seen in cells immediately following meiosis. Protein persists until later stages of spermatid elongation but is not detected in fully elongated spermatids.

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.
A sequence comparison and numerical analysis of the RRM-containing (RNA recognition motif) proteins suggests that functionally related RRM-containing proteins have significant sequence similarities in their RRMs.
