RT-PCR analysis of Tal reveals strong expression in first instar larvae and both male and female adults, and moderate expression at pupal stage P6. Expression is weak in embryos and later larval and pupal stages. Tal transcript is expressed in all tissues during embryonic development.
Western blot analysis reveals that Tal protein is present in all stages from embryonic stage 11. Expression is strongest in embryos and in pharate adults. Tal protein is localised to the cells of stage 5 embryos, but is excluded from the yolk. The entire embryo is labeled during gastrulation and germband extension stages. At stage 12, Tal protein is observed in ectodermal cells that differentiate into the procepalic lobe, the gnathal and cephalic segments, and the thoracic segments. In the larval central nervous system and ring gland, Tal protein is localized to the cytoplasm of non-neuronal cells.

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 gene symbol "Tal" has been changed to "Taldo" (which matches the HGNC nomenclature of the human ortholog) in order to reduce confusion with the "tal" ("tarsal-less") gene symbol, from which it differed only by case.
