Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: catalase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to hydrogen peroxide.
26 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: adult midgut; trichogen cell; intestinal stem cell; enterocyte.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Catalase; Catalase, N-terminal; Catalase-like domain, haem-dependent; Catalase-related immune responsive; Catalase-related subgroup.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
