Glue proteins drosophila

Glue proteins, drosophila

Glycosylated proteins which are part of the salivary glue that drosophila larvae secrete as a means of fixing themselves to an external substrate for the duration of the pre-pupal and pupal period. The proteins which consist of at least eight polypeptides are encoded in the third larval instar by the sgs-3, sgs-4, sgs-7 and sgs-8 genes.
