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.
Identification: In a comprehensive microarray analysis for eye-enriched genes in the Drosophila genome, to identify new loci implicated in visual transduction or retinal degeneration. Tsp42Ej is a member of the tetraspanin protein encoding family.
Tsp42Ej may attenuate signaling from light illumination through down regulation of the rhodopsin level.
