Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: lateral inhibition; embryonic development via the syncytial blastoderm; bicoid mRNA localization; regulation of pole plasm oskar mRNA localization; anterior/posterior axis specification, embryo.
38 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic head; embryonic maxillary segment; embryonic labral segment; tarsal segment; prothoracic ventral denticle belt; embryonic thorax; wing vein; labrum; cephalic furrow; embryonic antennal segment.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Legume lectin, beta chain, Mn/Ca-binding site.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
