Summaries
Gene Group (FlyBase)
NUCLEAR RECEPTOR (LIGAND-DEPENDENT) TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS -
Nuclear receptors (NR) are C4 zinc finger ligand-dependent DNA-binding transcription factors. Members of the NR superfamily are defined by the presence of a highly conserved DNA-binding domain and a less conserved C-terminal ligand-binding domain. (Adapted from FBrf0184203).
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
Induces the early late puff 78C which triggers puparium formation and development.

Comments

Translation initiates at a CUG codon. This protein lacks a DNA-binding domain but shares the ligand-binding/dimerization domain with the other major protein product of the Eip78C gene, Eip78C+P864.

One of a couple of protein products.

    Other Comments

    Eip78C is required to establish the somatic germline stem cell niche in the ovary and it functions in the germline to promote the survival of developing follicles.

    Gene expression is increased in response to the presence of two copies of Scer\GAL4hs.PB.

    RNAi generated by PCR using primers directed to this gene causes a cell growth and viability phenotype when assayed in Kc167 and S2R+ cells.

    Normal Eip78C gene function is not required for viability or fertility, and its disruption has no visible phenotype. Deletion and overexpression of Eip78C demonstrates it function is required for the maximal induction of a subset of late puffs.

    Eip78C expression is temporally shifted throughout the onset of metamorphosis by Eip74EF mutations.

    This ecdysone inducible gene encodes two nested transcription units. The larger encodes a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily, the smaller encodes a truncated version that lacks the DNA binding domain.

    Eip78C gene structure and gene regulation have been determined.
