Additional Descriptive Data

As part of a survey of ciliary motility gene homologs in Drosophila, expression of Tektin-A was assayed in motile ciliated cell types. Tektin-A is expressed in testis and enriched in chordotonal neurons. In situ hybridization confirms that it is expressed in chordotonal neurons but not in sensory neurons with non-motile cilia.
