Dmoesin, Dmoe, l(1)G0067, l(1)G0323, l(1)G0404
the sole Drosophila Ezrin, Radixin, Moesin (ERM) protein - involved in cortical cytoskeleton stability - actin-binding protein - functions to promote cortical actin assembly, apical-basal polarity and mitotic spindle organisation - Crumbs displays complex dynamics during follicular morphogenesis and is regulated competitively by Moesin and aPKC

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.

Moe is required to maintain apical-basal polarity, epithelial integrity and correct actin distribution in imaginal disc cells.
Mutant phenotypes include lethality, female sterility and imperfect eye and wing development, in addition to a maternal effect loss of germ cells in embryos.
Alteration of the actin cytoskeleton in oocytes resulting from Moe mutations impairs the localization of maternal determinants, thus disrupting antero-posterior polarity. Moe mutations also lead to defects in the actin cytoskeleton of nurse cells and consequently produce severe defects in nurse-cell shape.
Moe is required during oogenesis for anchoring microfilaments to the oocyte cortex.

Mer and Moe are frequently coexpressed in developing tissues, but their subcellular localisations are distinct. Moe shows continuous plasma membrane association and Mer is localised in punctate structures that are associated with both the plasma membrane and the cytoplasm.
