NIMROD GENES -
The Nimrod family of genes is characterised by the presence of NIM repeats, closely related to the EGF-repeat. They encode proteins which are secreted or integral to the plasma membrane. The Nimrod genes have been linked to the innate immune response and some members of this family have been shown to act as receptors for bacterial or apoptic cell phagocytosis. (Adapted from FBrf0212245).

From Bridges and Morgan, 1919, Carnegie Inst. Washington Publ. No. 278: 148.
Distal half of wing upturned but not twisted as in Cy. Curling is strong if wing unfolds at 25-30 but is weak or overlaps wild type if wing unfolds below 25. RK2.

        Additional comments
        FlyBase Curator comment: Following the merge of the "nimA" and "j" gene reports, "nimA/nimrod A" has been retained as the FlyBase symbol/name rather than "j/jaunty" in order to maintain consistency in the nomenclature of genes within the nimrod gene cluster.
        Annotations CG31765 and CG31841 merged as CG42282 in release 5.8 of the genome annotation.
        Annotation CG8855 split into CG33119 and CG31765 in release 3 of the genome annotation.
        The sequence of gene prediction " BG:DS00180.5 " from FBrf0111326 overlaps three release 3.2 annotations; CG31765, CG31766 and CG31841.

        Origin and Etymology
        Discoverer
        Bridges, 11th Dec. 1911.
        Etymology
        The "nimrod" gene cluster is dubbed after Nimrod, the biblical "mighty hunter before the Lord" (Genesis 10), who according to Gesta Hungarorum was also the ancestor of all Hungarians (Kezai Simon, Gesta Hunnorum et Hungarorum A.D. 1282).
