kraken transcripts are expressed strongly in preblastoderm embryos but fade in blastoderm embryos. Strong expression is next observed in stage 11 embryos in the foregut and in the posterior midgut primordium. During germ band retraction, expression is observed throughout the anterior and posterior midgut primordia. At stage 13, expression is observed in two patches in the midgut and in the posterior spiracle. In stage 15, expression is in part of the pharynx, in the gastric caeca, in the posterior spiracles, and along the anteriormost dge of the midgut. By the end of embryogenesis, expression is mainly found in the gastric caeca. In third instar larvae, kraken transcripts are expressed at a low level in the gastric caeca, the midgut, and the hindgut, and at a high level in the fat body. They are also detected in the eye and leg imaginal discs.

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.

The gene is named "kraken" because of its embryonic expression pattern.
