The slowpoke gene of Drosophila melanogaster encodes a Ca-activated K channel. This gene is expressed in neurons, muscles, tracheal cells, and the copper and iron cells of the midgut. The gene produces a large number of alternative products using tissue-specific transcriptional promoters and alternative mRNA splicing. We have described in great depth how transcription is regulated and are now cataloging the tissue-specificity of different splice variants. It is believed that the diversity of… CONTINUE READING
