Ret transcript is expressed in small clusters of cells at the midline of the ventral neve cord segments. In third instar larva, expression is detected in a small cell cluster in the posterior ventral nerve cord.
Ret transcript is first observed at embryonic stage 8, localized to intensely-stained irregularly shaped patches in the yolk sac; these patches are interior to all three germ layers, and do not overlap with the amnioserosa. This pattern continues through embryonic stage 11, and rapidly disappers at stage 12, as the germband retracts and organogenesis begins. Ret transcript is expressed in the Malpighian tubule primordium at embryonic stage 12, but vanishes from that tissue by stage 13. Ret is also expressed in the stomatogastric nervous system and in midgut imaginal islands from stage 12 and in the peripheral nervous system of the head from embryonic stage 16, and in isolated cells in the ventral nerve cord from stage 12. In the third instar larval eye-antennal imaginal disc, expression is detected in the retinal cluster near the morphogenetic furrow, and in the ocellar region. During oogenesis, expression is detected in nurse cells, but not in mature oocytes.
Ret transcript is detected at low levels in embryonic stages, and at very low levels in larvae and pupae. Embryonic expression is first detected after cellularization, and is transient. Expression reappears in a subset of neuroblasts at embryonic stage 11, and disappears at germ band retraction. Starting at stage 13-14, three rows of cells in the ventral nerve cord express Ret transcript. Transient expression is detected at stage 13 in some PNS cells, and some ganglial cells.

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.

Ret codes for a transmembrane protein most similar in sequence to a mammalian proto-oncogene ret. Ret mRNA is transcribed in very small amounts in the embryonic, larval and pupal stages. mRNA is transiently expressed in neuroblasts in early embryos and is detected in subpopulations of differentiating PNS and CNS cells in late embryos.
