Forms a complex with piwi and fs(1)Yb; this interaction is required for proper piRNA loading and nuclear localization of piwi. The interaction of piwi and fs(1)Yb is likely to occur via armi.

Weak expression of armi is seen in the cytoplasm of germline nurse cells and their surrounding somatic follicle cells, which contain one or more strong foci of armi staining. Colocalization with fs(1)Yb suggests that the armi foci are Yb bodies. armi is only weakly associated with P granules.

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.

Expression is enriched in embryonic gonads.
armi is required for the accumulation of repeat-associated small interfering RNAs (rasiRNAs).
armi is required for posterior and dorsoventral patterning during oogenesis.
The gene is named "armitage" after the navigator on Robert Falcon Scott's failed Discovery expedition to the South Pole.
