Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: structural constituent of cytoskeleton.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: skeletal myofibril assembly; phagocytosis, engulfment.
83 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: dorsal medial muscle; tendon cell; striated muscle thin filament; sarcomere; myofibril; wing; indirect flight muscle.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Actin, conserved site; Actin-like; Actin/actin-like conserved site.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
