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.
Area matching Drosophila EST AI062013. This EST matches Drosophila gene NURF-38. Acc. No. AF085601.
Nurf-38 may serve a structural or regulatory role in the nucleosome remodeling factor (NURF) complex.
NURF, a protein complex of four subunits Caf1, Nurf-38, E(bx) and Iswi, is able to facilitate transcription mediated by a Scer\GAL4 derivative carrying a constitutively activating region from Hsf. Once nucleosome remodelling by the DNA binding factor is accomplished a high level of NURF activity is not continuously required for recruitment of the general transcription machinery and transcription initiation. NURF is able to assist gene activation in a chromatin context: remodel nucleosomes for gene activation in chromatin.
