atk expression is observed at embryonic stages 15–17 in type I embryonic sensory organs, including ch and es mechanosensory organs and chemosensory organs of the head and tail. Transcription commences at stage 15 in the head and the terminal sensilla. At early stage 16, transcription starts in mechanosensory organs along the body segments. The strongest expression is seen in stage 16 embryos. At stage 17, expression disappears from mechanosensory organs along the body segments and weakens in the head and terminal sensilla.

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 'artichoke' because of the morphology of the lch5 organ in mutants.
