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.
vtd is required for synaptonemal complex maintenance, but not sister chromatid cohesion, during female meiosis.
RNAi screen using dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene results in chromosome misalignment on the metaphase spindle when assayed in S2 cells. This phenotype can be observed when the screen is performed with or without Cdc27 dsRNA.
S2 cells transfected with dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene show longer metaphase spindles.
Genetic analysis suggests that wild type Rad21 function is required for proper progression through mitosis, in particular for normal chromosome segregation.
Mutant cells delay in prometaphase with normally condensed, but prematurely separated sister chromatids and with abnormal spindle morphology.
Transiently named CG40222 in release 3 of the genome annotation.
vtd is one of the 18 loci identified in a screen for dominant modifiers of Pc and/or Antp phenotypes. Alleles of Pc, Pcl, Scm, Dll, brm, kto, Scr and trx show clear dominant enhancement or suppression of AntpScx, whereas alleles of vtd, Vha55, Su(Pc)37D, urd, mor, skd and osa do not.
One of a series of EMS-induced lethals detected by failure to complement proximal heterochromatic deficiencies in 3L or 3R, which resulted from detachments, i.e., reconstitutions of normal third chromosomes, from irradiated C(3L)RM/C(3R)RM-bearing females; a large set of such proximal heterochromatic deficiencies was employed in deficiency mapping of these lethals (Marchant and Holm, 1988).
