SIFa protein is detected in layer 5 of the fan-shaped body, as well as faintly in the central and ventral layers.
SIFa protein is expressed in 4 cells in the pars intercerebralis that extend processes throughout most of the brain neuropils, except for the mushroom body stalks, lobes and calyces. The processes that innervate the antennal lobe arborise in most glomeruli. In addition, 3 pairs of cell bodies are detected in the dorsolateral protocerebrum. The cells labelled in the pars intercerebralis by SIFa also express Scer\GAL4SIFa.PT.

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.
