glec transcript is expressed in cells immediately dorsal to and ventral to the dorsal/ventral compartment boundary of the wing disc. No expression is observed in the haltere disc.
Expression pattern inferred from unspecified enhancer trap line.
On Northern blots, the glec transcript is detected at highest levels in embryos, at low levels in larvae and pupae, and at extremely low levels in adult flies. Using in situ localization, the glec transcript is first detected at stage 11 of embryogenesis, in a segmentally repeated pattern in the ectoderm. This expression peaks at stages 13-14 in midline cells within the ventral nerve cord.

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.
A subset of COS cells transfected with an embryonic cDNA library adhere to zwitterionic glycolipids isolated from embryos. Analysis of the encoded proteins expression pattern and carbohydrate-binding activity led to the protein designation 'Gliolectin'.
