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.

Owing to the ability of mutants in this gene to rescue degeneration in blind mutants of the rdgA gene, this gene is named "lazaro" (laza). This name derives from the Spanish novel "Lazarillo de Tormes", in which Lazaro is the boy servant of a blind man and helps him to see.
The gene is referred to as lazaro (laza), as the name is based on the novel Lazarillo de Tormes, in which the orphan boy Lazaro, helps a blind man see.
