emp transcript first appears during 6-8 hours of embryogenesis, and continues to be detected throughout development. During embryogenesis, expression is restricted to the ectoderm, and especially to various epithelial tissues, including embryonic epidermis and the foregut and hindgut epithelia. After germ band retraction, additional expression is detected in subepidermal tissue that may correspond to the tracheal tree. Expression in imaginal disc epithelial cells is detected in third instar larval through mid-pupal stages. In the third instar larval wing disc, expression is seen in columnar epithelial cells, but not in the adepithelial cells. Expression is also detected in the peripodial membrane.

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.
