Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: microtubule binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chorion-containing eggshell formation; actin filament-based process; actin nucleation; pole plasm assembly; pole plasm RNA localization.
33 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 11 unique terms, many of which group under: female germline cyst; organ system; multicellular structure; anatomical structure; egg; gamete; blastoderm embryo; embryonic segment; protein complex; cell part.
It has 9 annotated transcripts and 9 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Actin-binding FH2; Actin-binding FH2/DRF autoregulatory; Formin.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed in adult male stages.
