fest transcript is expressed predominantly, but not entirely, in the testis; RT-PCR analysis reveals strong expression in intact males, but faint expression in females and gonadectomized males.

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.

Gene is named "wurstfest" after the mutant phenotype: mutant testes are half-filled with small, sausage-shaped cells.
