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.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.
Flies deleted for the btv locus show anatomical defects in the Johnston's organ: the ciliary dilations are enlarged and the paracrystalline inclusions are absent and replaced by vacuoles.
Identification: Screen for mutants with altered behavioral response to the male courtship song.
Auditory mutant: Johnston's organ response is severely reduced.
Gene is identified in an auditory behaviour screen.
