Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: myosin phosphatase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: ovarian nurse cell to oocyte transport; striated muscle tissue development; chromosome segregation; female germline ring canal formation; negative regulation of JNK cascade; imaginal disc-derived wing morphogenesis.
19 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 30 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; adult mesothoracic segment; indirect flight muscle; organ system subdivision; female germline cyst; cytoplasmic part; organelle; adult somatic muscle; portion of tissue; cell cycle; dorsal thoracic disc; external compound sense organ.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Metallophosphoesterase domain; Serine/threonine-specific protein phosphatase/bis(5-nucleosyl)-tetraphosphatase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 and 12-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
