Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; segmentation; gonadal mesoderm development; germ cell migration; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent.
194 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 73 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; adult segment; abdominal ventral denticle belt; embryonic segment; thoracic segment; embryonic abdomen; organ system subdivision; prothoracic segment; presumptive embryonic/larval nervous system; antennal segment; late extended germ band embryo.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Fushi tarazu, N-terminal; Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
