Gene summary

Listed at the top of this page are the gene symbol, name, source of the name, and location (in chromosome and base pairs). The gene name refers to the symbol extracted from publications or submitted directly by the community.

VectorBase IDs use a four-letter code to represent the species and strain information e.g. 'AGAP' for Anopheles gambiae. The 6-digit number following each ID is unique for that gene, and stable (unchanging), unless the gene model drastically changes.

Genome sequence

This page shows the genome sequence for a gene of interest. Flanking sequence and introns are displayed. Exons belonging to the gene of interest are shown in red letters with red highlighting. Other exons within this region that do not belong to the gene of interest are shown in black letters with red highlights.

cDNA sequence

Example page

This highly customisable sequence shows, by default, the transcript sequence (cDNA), the coding sequence underneath it, and the protein sequence in the third line. Line numbering is different for all three sequences.
