|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: nicotinic acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: ion transport.
9 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand-binding; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel transmembrane domain; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel, conserved site; Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
