Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in embryonic abdomen; a single cell ventrally, pairs of cells laterally and three cells dorsally in each hemisegment. In the thorax, there are patches of cells associated with the imaginal disks. During larval development, cells proliferate and, in the abdomen, they form ventral, lateral and dorsal clusters, which are the precursors of the adult abdominal muscles. In the thorax, they form populations of cells in the imaginal disks that correspond to the adepithelial cells.1 Publication

Developmental stagei

Expressed throughout development.

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Efficient DNA binding requires dimerization with another bHLH protein. Homodimer.
