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.
avl mutant tissues form tumour-like growths. Loss of function avl mutants cause columnar monolayered epithelia to become rounded and mulitlayered and to have apical proteins and adherens junctions ectopically localized throughout the basolateral surface.
Ovarian follicular cells are rounded and form a multilayered structure in mutant females (in contrast to the monolayer of columnar-shaped follicle cells found in the wild type). Eye discs consisting mostly of avl mutant cells show massive overproliferation, resulting in tumour-like growths. Mutant cells ectopically localize apical proteins as well as adherens junctions throughout the basolateral cell surface.
