High impact information on Fancd2

  • Here we report the cloning and sequencing of a Drosophila full length cDNA homologous to human FANCD2 (dmFANCD2) as a first step in using Drosophila in Fanconi anaemia research. dmFANCD2 is composed of 14 exons coding for a protein of 1478 aminoacids [1].
  • Southern blot and in situ hybridization analysis indicated that dmFANCD2 is present at single copy in the Drosophila genome and maps at the chromosomal band 92-F3 [1].
