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.
S2 cells treated with vsg dsRNA show a reduced growth rate compared to controls. This inhibition of growth is at least in part due to programmed cell death.
Area matching Drosophila EST AA540197. This EST forms a 723bp contig with ESTs AA695503 and AA941503.
Given the name "visgun", after one of Pavlov's dogs.
