|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: transcription factor binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; cephalic furrow formation; head segmentation.
27 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 34 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; antennal segment; abdominal lateral pentascolopidial chordotonal organ lch5; adult segment; larval head segment; embryonic segment; organ system; external compound sense organ; portion of tissue; embryonic head; sensillum; larval abdominal segment.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like; Zinc finger, C2H2-type/integrase, DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
