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.
Genetical immobilisation of the proboscis in aperC mutations can be achieved by creating an aperC/aperA double mutant, this double mutant exhibits suppression of the aperC proboscis extension muscle degeneration phenotype.
Mutants show a variable phenotypic defects in the sugar-induced proboscis extension reflex (PER): some aperA flies cannot extend their probosces at all, whereas they are able to open the labellar lobes; some individuals extend their probosces only to the right or the left side of the body; each mutant individual seems to have a fixed phenotype, e.g., a fly which shows one-sided PER always extends its proboscis to the same side.
