|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: gastrulation involving germ band extension; hindgut morphogenesis; segment specification; genital disc development; genital disc anterior/posterior pattern formation; germ-band extension.
31 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 13 unique terms, many of which group under: multicellular structure; organ system; anatomical structure; abdominal segment 8; portion of tissue; adult; abdominal segment 10; embryonic head; sensillum; embryonic abdomen; organ system subdivision; late extended germ band embryo.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Helix-turn-helix motif, lambda-like repressor; Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
