Please Note FlyBase no longer curates genomic clone accessions so this list may not be complete
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.

gpp mutants exhibit phenotypes and genetic interactions that are characteristic of both Polycomb-Group and trithorax-Group genes.
Area matching Drosophila EST AA735819.
A novel trithorax group gene, identified in a genetic screen devised for the isolation of dominant suppressors of pairing-sensitive miniwhite inactivation.
The gene is named "grappa" because of the light yellow phenotype associated with the posterior-to-anterior transformation of the A5 and A6 male tergite plates seen in mutants (this light colour reminded one of the authors of a favourite drink from his not so distant youth and thus is the origin of the name).
