Low-frequency RNA-Seq exon junction(s) not annotated.
Gene model reviewed during 5.49
None of the polypeptides share 100% sequence identity.
The calcium release channel activity resides in the C-terminal region while the remaining part of the protein resides in the cytoplasm.

RyR transcript is first detected in the mesoderm at stage 9, and levels increase starting at stage 13. Highest levels are seen in hypodermal and visceral muscles. Expression is detected at lower levels in other tissues, including the CNS.
Expression is high in 6-12 hr embryos, low in second and third instar larvae, and absent from adults and pupae.
RyR transcripts are detected in RNA from embryos, larvae, and adults, but not in pupal RNA. They are more abundant in RNA from body than head. In embryos, transcripts are first detected in the mesoderm in stage 9. Subsequently, transcripts are found in somatic and cephalic muscle precursors, and later, in all of the somatic muscles and a subset of the cephalic muscles. In adults, RyR transcripts are expressed maximally in tubular muscles of the thorax, namely the tergotrochanteral muscle and the leg muscles. Expression is also observed in the cortex of the ventral ganglion and brain and in muscles of the head and proboscis.

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.
Source for identity of: RyR Rya-r44F
FlyBase curator comment: Gene symbol changed from 'Rya-r44F' to 'RyR' because: i) it represents community usage; ii) it mirrors the nomenclature of the vertebrate orthologs; iii) there is only a single RyR-encoding gene in the genome, so there's no need to distinguish this one.
