Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein heterodimerization activity; protein binding; protein homodimerization activity.
There is experimental evidence for 32 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; organ development; biological regulation; cellular process involved in reproduction; multicellular organismal reproductive process; regulation of developmental process; post-embryonic appendage morphogenesis; post-embryonic organ morphogenesis; organ morphogenesis; regulation of multicellular organismal development.
289 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 167 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; organ system; adult mesothoracic segment; primordium; antennal segment; late extended germ band embryo; non-connected developing system; imaginal precursor; female germline cyst; mouthpart.
It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Inhibin, alpha subunit; Transforming growth factor beta, conserved site; Transforming growth factor-beta, C-terminal; Transforming growth factor-beta, N-terminal; Transforming growth factor-beta-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
