Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: eye pigment granule organization; endosome to lysosome transport; regulation of protein ubiquitination; compound eye pigmentation; autophagic vacuole fusion; protein targeting to lysosome; determination of adult lifespan; endosome organization; ommochrome biosynthetic process.
17 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: Malpighian tubule; mesothoracic tergum; eye; late endosome; embryonic/larval brain; pigment cell.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Sec1-like protein.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
