Drives expression in histoblasts and histoblast nests, in enteroblasts, and in intestinal stem cells.
Scer\GAL4NP5130 drives expression in abdominal histoblast nests and histoblasts, but not in cuticular larval epidermal cells.
Scer\GAL4NP5130 expression is observed in 36% of small cells that occupy a basal position within the adult midgut epithelium.
About half of esg-positive (Scer\GAL4NP5130 expression) cells lack N signalling (do not express Ecol\lacZDdc.be2.E(spl)m8-HLH); these exhibit characteristics of intestinal stem cells and enteroblasts.
Expression in second instar leg discs is excluded from the distal-most regions. Third instar expression is observed in the proximal region of the leg discs.
