In late embryos, Mp is specifically localized at the heart lumen, but not at the cardioblast basal domain. The Mp antibody does not detect staining at the aorta domain, nor in the pair of ostia cells. Importantly, Mp was only detected in cardioblasts at the stage of tube formation, and not in earlier stages.

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.
