Drm-PK-2, pyrokinin-2, hug-γ, hug γ, hugγ
controls growth and metabolism - encodes at least two distinct neuropeptides; one, hug-γ, has homology to an ecdysone triggering hormone and a second, Drm-PK-2, is a pyrokinin with myostimulatory activity

There are 20 cells of the hugin cluster which consist of four classes, whose cell bodies are arranged fairly symmetrically straddling the midline: eight project to the protocerebrum and four each project to the ventral nerve cord, the ring gland, and the anterior pharynx.

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.
