wa-cup transcripts are detected at low levels in primary spermatocytes and are barely detected in early elongation spermatids. Robust signals are detected in more elongated spermatids at the distal ends. Transcripts localize in shallow cup-like shapes at the ends of spermatids bundles (called a cup pattern).

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.
Source for identity of: wa-cup CG10113
The gene is named "walker-cup", based on the "cup"-like pattern of expression of the transcript in spermatid bundles; the mRNA localises in shallow cup-like shapes at the end of the spermatid bundles.
