GBrowse Expression/Regulation view help

 

The Expression/Regulation contains all the information relevant to how genes are expressed and regulated. This includes tracks such as RNA-Seq by developmental stages, transcription factor binding sites, and enhancers.

Aligned Evidence
cDNA D. melanogaster cDNA sequences submitted to the sequence databases; shows the exon (wider bars) and intron (black line) structure, and direction of transcription. Sequences submitted prior to 2003 aligned using sim4 (FBrf0105376) or sim4tandem (sim4 modified by S. Shu, BDGP) to Release 3 by the BDGP and promoted to Releases 4 and 5 by FlyBase. Sequences submitted since 2003 aligned to Releases 4 and 5 by NCBI and submitted to FlyBase. Some genomic DNA submissions, including TPA submissions, are included in this tier.

EST ("expressed sequence tag") Partial sequence of a cDNA; shows the exon (wider bars) and intron (black line) structure, and direction of transcription. D. melanogaster EST sequences submitted to the sequence databases prior to 2003 aligned using sim4 (FBrf0105376) to Release 3 by the BDGP and promoted to Releases 4 and 5 by FlyBase. D. melanogaster EST sequences submitted since 2003 aligned to Releases 4 and 5 by NCBI and submitted to FlyBase.

mRNA D. melanogaster mRNA sequences submitted to the sequence databases; shows the exon (wider bars) and intron (black line) structure, and direction of transcription. Sequences are aligned to Release 5 by NCBI and submitted to FlyBase. These mRNA sequences frequently reflect composite assemblies of a conceptual transcript and therefore may not be available as reagents.

Previous Gene Models
Recently deleted transcripts FlyBase annotated transcript models that have been deleted from FlyBase since annotation release 5.8; shows the exon (wider bars) and intron (black line) structure. FlyBase policy is to delete a transcript and create a new model if alteration of the existing model alters the coding region of the transcript in any way. In addition, transcripts can be retired if it is judged that the model is erroneous or lacks sufficient supporting evidence.

Mapped Mutations
Transgene insertion site SO:0000368 Indicated by blue triangles with an arrow or diamonds with no arrow. An insertion indicated by a downward-pointing triangle and an arrow pointing to the right is oriented with its conventional 5' terminus to the left (assuming view is in conventional orientation of the Drosophila chromosome); this is described as being in the "plus" orientation. An insertion indicated by an upward-pointing triangle and an arrow pointing to the left is oriented with its conventional 5' terminus to the right (assuming view is in conventional orientation of the Drosophila chromosome); this is described as being in the "minus" orientation. An insertion indicated with a blue diamond has an unknown orientation. For all insertions, if the estimated insertion site is larger than 10 nucleotides, there are short dashes on either side of the triangle or diamond. In those cases, see the Insertion Report for more information about localization. Insertions are hyperlinked to their respective Insertion Report. NOTE: If the "Flip" option is selected, the orientations of the insertion triangles do not change and thus will be incorrect. For a guide on how to work out the orientation of an insertion relative to a transcript of interest, see this short powerpoint presentation.
