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.
The structure and location of the nompA protein together with the phenotypes of mutants suggest that it forms part of a mechanical linkage required to transmit mechanical stimuli to the transduction apparatus.
Mutations disrupt contacts between neuronal sensory endings and cuticular structures.
Bristle recordings of mutant flies show almost complete loss of mechanoreceptor potential (MRP). Mutations cause adult inviability due to severe uncoordination.
