Expressioni

Developmental stagei

In larvae, transcript is enhanced 4 hours after the bacterial infection, increases up to 12 hours post inoculation and declines by 24 hours and by 30 hours returns to background levels. In adult female, expression is evident by 18 hours after infection. Constitutively expressed in both early and late pupae.1 Publication

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
