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.
Named "perdido" ("lost" in Spanish) because muscles fail to find their attachment sites in mutant embryos.
The gene is named "perdido", meaning "lost" in Spanish, since the morphology of muscles in mutant embryos indicates that they are not attached to the epidermal tendon cells.
The gene is named "kon-tiki" after the raft on which explorer Thor Heyerdahl sailed to Polynesia.
