Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: arginine kinase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: phosphorylation.
19 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mesothoracic tergum; trichogen cell.
It has 6 annotated transcripts and 6 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: ATP:guanido phosphotransferase; ATP:guanido phosphotransferase active site; ATP:guanido phosphotransferase, N-terminal; ATP:guanido phosphotransferase, catalytic domain; Glutamine synthetase/guanido kinase, catalytic domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the larval period.
