The tetrapeptide (A-A-P-[AV]) repeats found throughout the protein are also present in many proteins constituting the protective envelope of other species.

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.
In a sample of 79 genes with multiple introns, 33 showed significant heterogeneity in G+C content among introns of the same gene and significant positive correspondence between the intron and the third codon position G+C content within genes. These results are consistent with selection adding against preferred codons at the start of genes.
Polyclonal antibodies have been used to localise Vm26Aa, Vm26Ab, Cp18 and Cp36 in the assembly and mature eggshell. Vitelline membrane proteins are processed in a stage specific manner, morphological integrity of the outer chorion layers is dependent upon proper expression of at least one vitelline membrane component, sV23.
