Heterodimer of a B chain and an A chain linked by two disulfide bonds.
Click to get a list of regulatory features (enhancers, TFBS, etc.) and gene disruptions (point mutations, indels, etc.) within or overlapping Dmel\Ilp6 using the Feature Mapper tool.
Ilp6 transcript levels increase by 12 hours post hatching and by 24 hours post hatching have increased 8-fold.
Expression in late third instar larval stage was found predominantly in fat body, with minor traces in gut and brain, but no expression in imaginal discs.
Transcript is detected at at low levels in the gut.

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.
