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.
Source for identity of: Ptth CG13687
Ptth is isolated and characterised from whole larval extracts. Ptth encodes a monomeric 66kD glycoprotein containing N-linked carbohydrate chains and intradisulfide bonds. Deglycosylated Ptth exists as a single 45kD peptide that is cleaved at a minimum of 3 different sites. The deglycosylated form shows heterogeneity, presumably as a result of varying degrees of deglycosylation at the N-terminus. Purified 45kD peptide can stimulate ecdysone synthesis and secretion by ring glands in vitro.
