The organization and evolution of the dipteran and hymenopteran Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule (Dscam) genes.


The Drosophila melanogaster Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule (Dscam) gene encodes an axon guidance receptor and can generate 38,016 different isoforms via the alternative splicing of 95 variable exons. Dscam contains 10 immunoglobulin (Ig), six Fibronectin type III, a transmembrane (TM), and cytoplasmic domains. The different Dscam isoforms vary in the… (More)
