In situ hybridization to sections of adult flies shows that Ca-P60A transcripts are detected in each tissue tested, generally at a low level. High transcript levels are observed in the central nervous system and in muscles. Strong expression is apparent in the visual system, in ganglion cells around the ocelli, and in the antennal center. It is also apparent in the muscles of the proboscis, the cibarial pump, the lateral pharyngeal muscles, and the salivary muscles. High expression is also seen in some muscles of the mesothorax and in the jump muscles. Finally, elevated levels are observed in oocytes.

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.

Changed symbol from 'Ca-P60A' to 'SERCA' to reflect preferred usage in the literature.
Treatment of S2 cells with dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene significantly increases the resting Ca2+ concentration, reduces the store release transient upon addition of thapsigargin, and strongly suppresses Ca2+ influx upon readdition of external Ca2+.
One of 42 Drosophila genes identified as being most likely to reveal molecular and cellular mechanisms of nervous system development or plasticity relevant to human Mental Retardation disorders.
Area matching Drosophila organellar-type Ca-ATPase gene, Acc. No. X84681.
Flies carrying Ca-P60A mutations paralyse within 3 minutes at 40oC and remain immobile up to two days on shifting back to the permissive temperature.
Analysis of the conserved core sequence in 159 P-type ATPases from the 3 domains of life (Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya) establishes 5 major groups of P-type ATPases.
There is a single Ca-P60A gene in the Drosophila genome.
The gene is named "Kumbhakarna" based on the mutant phenotype; when restored to the permissive temperature, "Kumbhakarna" mutants show prolonged paralysis of 6-48 hours, the duration of paralysis depending on the duration of prior exposure to the restrictive temperature. "Kumbhakarna" is a mythological hero who slept for 6 months of the year.
