The rhea protein was detected in the cytoplasm of early cellularized embryos. Subsequently, rhea protein concentrated at the membrane of migrating midgut primordial cells and then at muscle attachment sites, specifically at hemi-adherens junctions. In wing imaginal discs the rhea protein localized to focal adhesion like structures at the basal surface.

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.
rhea is required continuously during heart growth to maintain the one-to-one apposition of myofibril ends between cardiomyocytes. Retracted myofibrils cannot regenerate appositions to adjacent cells if normal rhea expression is subsequently restored.
Distinct combinations of talin (rhea) domains are required for each of three different integrin functions during development. The talin IBS2 domain is separated from integrins in the muscles but not at wing adhesion sites, and this separation partly requires myosin activity and Vinc.
rhea is required for maintenance of tracheal terminal branches and luminal organization.
S2 cells treated with dsRNA generated against this gene show reduced phagocytosis of Candida albicans compared to untreated cells.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.
RNAi screen using dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene causes a phenotype when assayed in S2R+ cells: cells become round and detached. Kc167 cells are unaffected.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene is tested in an RNAi screen for effects on actin-based lamella formation.
