High impact information on CG7714

  • A putative Drosophila melanogaster ortholog or paralog of peritrophin-55 (CG7714) was located within a 3458 bp intron of the Cha gene (choline-O-acetyltransferase), but on the opposite strand [1].
  • Comparison of the putative promoter regions of the peritrophin-55 and CG7714 genes revealed little similarity except for a small semi-conserved sequence that is suggestive of a common transcription factor-binding site possibly contributing to the highly restricted developmental and tissue-specific expression patterns of these genes [1].
