b expression is observed in adults in the neuropil of the lamina and in regions of the thoracic musculature. Specifically, thoracic hybridization is seen to the tergotrochanteral muscle and in striations along the dorsal medial muscles. Faint hybridization was also observed in a small section of the ventral ganglion in larvae.

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.
Haploinsufficient locus (not associated with strong haplolethality or haplosterility).
Identified as a gene with significant level of mRNA cycling as assessed by expression analysis using high density oligonucleotide arrays with probe generated from adult heads harvested over six time points over the course of a day.
Isolation and characterisation of the second pyridoxal phosphate-dependent decarboxylase.
Black pigment on body and tarsi and along wing veins. Reflectance of cuticle 40% that of wild type (Pedersen, 1982). Heterozygote somewhat darker than wild type, especially on trident, but never confused with homozygote. Body color darker at low temperature (Sherald, 1981). Puparium lighter than wild type. Not easily classified in newly emerged flies (Waddington, 1942). Tyrosinase formed in adult flies (Horowitz). Fails to synthesize beta-alanine (Hodgetts, 1972) and feeding or injection of beta-alanine to b produces normal phenotype (Jacobs, 1974; Hodgetts, Hodgetts and Choi, 1974). Also corrected by feeding 6-azauracil (Pedersen, 1982); feeding 6-azathymine produces weak b phenocopy which is suppressed by Su(b) (Pedersen). ERG normal (Hotta and Benzer, 1969). Puparial case structurally abnormal with wide, diffuse, exocuticular lamellae and indistinct endocuticular fibrils (Jacobs, 1978). Pupae UV sensitive (Jacobs, 1978). Suppressed by su(b) (Sherald, 1981) and Su(b) (Pedersen); enhanced by sp2 (Gubb) and su(r) (Pedersen). su(r) su(b) b is enhanced black; su(r) b not enhanced by feeding 6-azauracil (Pedersen). Possibly structural gene for beta-ureidopropionase (Sherald).
