a proteoglycan secreted into the ommatidial apical matrix - critical for the formation of epithelial lumina in the fly retina - forms an extracellular shield that guards mechanosensory neurons from environmental insult

In scolopidia, eys is expressed In the the luminal space adjacent to the cilia dilation and the scolopidium base.
eys protein is expressed in the base of the cilia in all sensilla of antenna segment 3. It is used as a marker for the cilia base.
Expression of eys is detected in the extracellular space surrounding the cilia of the mechanosensory bristles of the abdominal cuticle.

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 eys protein forms an extracellular shield that guards mechanosensory cells from environmental insult, protecting them from cellular deformation caused by heat-induced osmotic imbalance.
eys function is critical for the formation of epithelial lumina in the fly retina.
