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.

Male derived Acp36DE protein is essential for efficient sperm storage by females; it is essential for the initial storage of sperm and may also influence the arrangement and retention of stored sperm.
Gene is identified in a differential cDNA hybridisation screen.
Acp36DE seminal fluid protein is localised in the mated female suggesting a function of the protein in restricting sperm to an area in the mated female's genital tract (just above the openings of the sperm storage organs) that facilitates sperm storage.
If females remate frequently relative to the duration of sperm storage and rate of sperm use, sperm displacement may be an important component of male reproductive success. Significant association has been found between Acp36DE mutant male sperm and the ability to resist displacement by subsequent sperm. There is no correlation between the ability to displace resident sperm and the ability to resist being displaced by subsequent sperm, this lack of correlation suggests that different mechanisms mediate that the two components of sperm displacement.
Acp36DE gene product is a seminal fluid protein whose fate after mating is consistent with a role in sperm storage.
May promote replacement of sperm already stored by a female.
