Please Note FlyBase no longer curates genomic clone accessions so this list may not be complete
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.
Mical has a cell-autonomous role in dendrite pruning and is specifically required for dendrite severing of class I and IV dendritic arborization neurons, but is dispensable for neuronal apoptosis in other apoptotic dendritic arborization neurons during early metamorphosis.
Gene is named "milchstrasse" (German for "milky way") based on the resemblance of bouton accumulations (marked with a fluorescent protein) to star clusters or galaxies at the neuromuscular junctions of mutant larvae.
