|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: zinc ion binding; DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chorion-containing eggshell formation; eggshell chorion gene amplification.
22 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: chorion; eye; trichogen cell; scutellar bristle.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: AT hook, DNA-binding motif; Zinc finger, DBF-type.
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 at stages throughout embryogenesis, in adult female stages.
