plexA transcripts are broadly distributed during early embryogenesis. Starting at the extended germ band stage, expression is strong in the CNS but is reduced elsewhere. After stage 15, transcripts are mainly restricted to the CNS where they are found in many neurons. Expression is also observed in myoblasts but does not persist in muscle fibers.

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.
PlexA functions cell autonomously in guiding the lateral cluster and v'ch1 axons.
