|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein heterodimerization activity; sequence-specific DNA binding; DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: bristle morphogenesis; regulation of antimicrobial peptide biosynthetic process; regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; peripheral nervous system development.
48 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 32 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; organ system subdivision; adult mesothoracic segment; integumentary plate; postalar bristle; sensillum; nervous system; external compound sense organ; acrostichal bristle; antennal segment; adult external prothorax.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Achaete-scute transcription factor-related; Helix-loop-helix DNA-binding; Helix-loop-helix DNA-binding domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
