Please Note FlyBase no longer curates genomic clone accessions so this list may not be complete
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: α-Est7 CG1112
Eleven putative esterase genes from the region containing the α-esterase cluster are cloned.
Encodes the EST23 isozyme, a subclass I carboxyl esterase whose preferred naphthyl ester substrate in vitro is α naphthyl acetate. The in vivo function of α-Est7 is unknown but the enzyme shows very close biochemical similarity with the E3 enzyme of the Australian sheep blowfly L.cuprina.
