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.

FlyBase Curator comment: Renamed from 'M(2)21AB' to 'Sam-S' because this gene has not been validated as a typical Minute gene, and because 'Sam-S' was the first meaningful symbol to be used for this gene in a published paper.
Not a Minute locus.
Expression is enriched in embryonic gonads.
Mutant M(2)21AB is caused by changes in the gene encoding the enzyme S-adenosylmethionine synthetase. Dominant suppressor and enhancer effects are likely to be caused by a decrease in spermine concentration and it is also likely that polyamines are important molecules in the assembly of higher order chromatin structure.
Isolated from a Drosophila pupal cDNA library.
One of a class of genes (see MIN record) that when present in one, rather than two, copies, produce a characteristic phenotype consisting of short slender bristles and delayed development.
