Fuca transcripts are detected by RT-PCR in the male testis, accessory gland, ejaculatory bulb, ejaculatory duct, and brain. Similar levels are found in the female brain. Lower levels are found in ovary and midgut. On northern blots, the long Fuca transcript is present in all samples while the shorter transcript is observed in brain. In situ hybridization on male reproductive apparatus shows weak expression in spermatogonia, and more robust expression from premeiotic spermatocytes up to round spermatids. Low levels are seen in elongating spermatid cysts. No expression is seen in stem cells. Expression is also observed in the terminal epithelium of the testis, and in the epithelium of seminal vesicles, male accessory glands, and ejaculatory duct. In ovaries, strong expression is observed in nurse cells from stage 1-10 and absent from the oocyte. Weak expression is seen at stages 12-14 in the nurse apical cluster.

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: Fuca CG6128
Source for merge of: Fuca Fuc
One or more of the processed transcripts for these genes contain two non-overlapping open reading frames (ORFs). The non-overlapping ORFs are represented by CG6128 (FBgn0036169), CG11714 (FBgn0036170).
Dicistronic annotation CG33047 split out into separate annotations for each open reading frame, CG11714 and CG6128, in release 4.2 of the genome annotation.
Expression is enriched in embryonic gonads.
α-fucosidase dosage sensitive regions mapped, by segmental aneuploidy, to 52E--54F and 88C--91B. Their relationship to Fuc is not clear.
