Gene model reviewed during 5.45
Component of the augmin complex composed of dgt2, dgt3, dgt4, dgt5, dgt6, msd1, msd5 and wac (PubMed:19289792, PubMed:19369198). The complex interacts directly or indirectly with microtubules and is required for centrosome-independent generation of spindle microtubules (PubMed:19289792). wac interacts directly (via coiled coil) with dgt2 (PubMed:19289792).

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: wac CG13879
wac is not required for acentrosomal spindle microtubule assembly but for the establishment of the forces allowing proper chromosome alignment and segregation in female meiosis.
