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: spd-2 CG17286
"CG18217" is a putative chimeric gene derived from the "spd-2" and "CG4098" genes (where coding sequences of the two parental genes contribute to the coding sequence of the chimeric gene).
spd-2 is required for pericentriolar material recruitment and astral microtubule nucleation in both neuroblasts and spermatocytes.
spd-2 is essential for proper pericentriolar material recruitment to the sperm centriole, and hence for microtubule nucleation and pronuclear fusion.
RNAi screen using dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene causes decreased γ-tubulin staining at the spindle pole when assayed in S2 cells. This phenotype can be observed when the screen is performed with or without Cdc27 dsRNA.
