Male Drosophila accessory gland secretory protein (IPR004315)

Short name: Male_ac_gland_sc

Family relationships



The accessory gland of male insects is a genital tissue that secretes many components of the ejaculatory fluid, some of which affect the female's receptivity to courtship and her rate of oviposition. The protein is expressed exclusively in the male accessory glands of adult Drosophila melanogaster. During copulation it is transferred to the female genital tract where it is rapidly altered [PMID: 3142802].
