Please Note FlyBase no longer curates genomic clone accessions so this list may not be complete
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.
rhi is required for transposon silencing and piRNA production by dual-strand clusters.
rhi is required for proper chromosome conformation in the nurse cells during oogenesis and for the correct patterning of the eggshell and embryo.
rhi is required for the formation of the two dorsolateral respiratory appendages of the eggshell from follicle cells.
Mutant rhi embryos display altered dorsal/ventral polarity and altered dorsal appendage structure.
The gene is named "rhino" after the mutant phenotype; many eggs laid by mutant females have a single dorsal appendage.
