rt maternal transcripts are observed at embryonic stages 5-7. From stage 14 rt expression is observed in developing epidermal cells as well as in hindgut and foregut. It is also present in developing trachea starting in stage 15.

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.

The gene is named "rotated abdomen" after the mutant phenotype; mutant flies have a clockwise twisted abdomen.
