The isolation, localization and characterization of the QM homolog in Drosophila melanogaster.


A fragment of 443 bp was amplified from a lambda ZAPII Drosophila central nervous system (CNS) cDNA library using minimally degenerate primers to very conserved regions of the QM gene. This fragment was used as a probe to screen the lambda ZAPII Drosophila CNS cDNA library. Two clones of the Drosophila QM homolog (pDQM-7A1 and pDQM-2B1), each containing the… (More)
