Characterization of DIP1, a novel nuclear protein in Drosophila melanogaster
We have recently identified in Drosophila melanogaster a new gene encoding a nuclear protein, DIPI. Here we report the developmental expression and the finding that DIPI subcellular localization is in the nucleus and at the nuclear periphery during interphase in embryos. Interestingly, in humans, DIPI antibody identified signals in nuclei from cultured cells and reacted with a rough 30 kDa protein in Western blotting experiments, demonstrating evolutionary conservation.
