daw transcript is expressed in the developing larval optic lobe, and in many glial cells, including surface glia within the optic lobe.
Maternally deposited daw transcript can be detected in embryos through syncytial blastoderm stage. daw transcript is expressed in the dorsal mesoderm, in a pattern that refines to segmental stripes during germ band extension and retraction stages. In third instar larvae, daw is strongly expressed in the central nervous system, and transiently in the ring gland. daw transcript is weakly expressed in eye-antennal and leg discs, and is not significantly expressed in wing discs. In the adult testis, daw transcipt is strongly expressed in somatic cells in the region where secondary spermatogonia are mitotically active. No expression is observed in the stem cells at the tip of the testis, or in primary spermatocytes; weak expression is observed during spermatid differentiation. daw transcript is expressed in nurse cells at all stages of oogenesis.

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.
This gene has been renamed from "Activin Like Protein at 23B" (Alp23B) to "dawdle" (daw) to avoid confusion with "Abnormal leg pattern" (Alp) and to better reflect the mutant phenotype.
The name "dawdle" refers to the delayed nature of the innervation defects seen in mutants of this gene.
