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.
Symbol of this gene changed from 'Vap-33A' to 'Vap33' as it is now apparent that it encodes the sole VAP protein in D. melanogaster.
FlyBase curator comment: The '33' suffix has been retained to distinguish this gene from the 'vap' gene (FBgn0003969).
FlyBase curator comment: Originally called 'VAP-33-1' in FBrf0127207, but this papers by same group (this one & FBrf0202930) call it 'VAP-33A'. (This nomenclature also matches the related gene named 'VAP-33B'.)
