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 for 17 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; biological regulation; cellular component organization or biogenesis; cell adhesion; organ development; regulation of biological process; signaling; organ morphogenesis; regulation of developmental process; regulation of cellular component organization.
69 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 32 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; external compound sense organ; adult segment; peripheral nervous system; nervous system; adult mesothoracic segment; primordium; non-connected developing system; ommatidial precursor cluster; eo support cell; embryonic segment; presumptive embryonic/larval nervous system.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: CD80-like, immunoglobulin C2-set; Fibronectin type III domain; Fibronectin, type III; Immunoglobulin I-set; Immunoglobulin subtype; Immunoglobulin subtype 2; Immunoglobulin-like; Immunoglobulin-like fold.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
