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.
psidin regulates olfactory neuron number and axon targeting through two distinct molecular mechanisms. It acts as an actin regulator and antagonist of Tm1 during axon guidance, while it acts as the non-catalytic submit of the N-acetyltransferase complex B to maintain the number of olfactory receptor neurons.
psidin acts in blood cells, where it plays two roles in the larval immune response: it is required both for the phagocytic degradation of internalised bacteria and for the induction of Def in the fat body.
Mutants show constitutive activation of the melanization reaction, but are impaired in the induction of antimicrobial gene expression.
