heph is predominantly expressed in the nuclei of primary spermatocytes in males
heph accumulates in the cytoplasm in the germrium. It accumulates transiently in the center of the oocytes in stages S7,8 and is localized to the posterior pole of the oocyted from stage S9 onward suggesting that it is transported with Oskar mRNA to the pole. heph is expressed both in the germline and in the somatic epithelium.

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.
