Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: alpha-amylase activity.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: carbohydrate metabolic process.
23 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Alpha amylase; Alpha-amylase, C-terminal all beta; Glycoside hydrolase, family 13; Glycoside hydrolase, subgroup, catalytic core; Glycoside hydrolase, superfamily; Glycosyl hydrolase, family 13, all-beta; Glycosyl hydrolase, family 13, catalytic domain; Glycosyl hydrolase, family 13, subfamily, catalytic domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, in adult male stages.
