pUf68, pUbsf, DPUF68, PUF60, poly U binding factor 68kD
RNA recognition motif protein - functions in both constitutive and alternative splicing - required during oogenesis - a single stranded nucleic acid binding protein - functions in Myc transcriptional repression and cell growth control, via interaction with the transcription factor Haywire.

Interacts with enc. However, given the cytoplasmic localization of enc, the relevance of such interaction is unclear.

hfp protein is detected in the nuclei of most cells in the wing disc, with higher staining in the ZNC, a zone of cells arrested in G1 or G2, along the dorsal/ventral compartment boundary in the wing disc.
Protein is detected in all nuclei of germline and somatic cells in the ovary when specific monoclonal antibodies are used for detection. When polyclonal sera is used cytoplasmic aggregates are detected, however, the significance of this result is unknown. Reduced amounts of protein are detected in the germline of viable hfp mutants suggesting that expression from a germline promoter is affected in these mutants.

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.

pUf68 mutant larvae are produced at a normal frequency, however they undergo an extended larval stage and are significantly larger than wild type. Imaginal discs from hypomorphic pUf68 mutant larvae have increased S phases. Despite completing metamorphosis, pUf68 pupae die in their pupal case. These pupae are large, with malformed legs and consistent duplication of scutellar bristles.
Identification: as a protein that shows a specific interaction with enc protein in a yeast two-hybrid assay.
