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.
Iron availability alters the distribution of different Fer1HCH RNA alternative splice variants.
Conserved ferritin PCR primers are used to isolate a cDNA clone that contains the complete coding sequence for a ferritin subunit. Additional 5' sequence obtained by RACE method reveals the presence of a putative iron regulatory element. The deduced amino acid sequence contains a signal sequence that closely resembles the sequence from A.aegypti ferritin.
Encodes the 25kD and 26kD ferritin subunits.
