Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: leg morphogenesis; olfactory behavior; pupation; metamorphosis; instar larval or pupal development; periodic partitioning.
77 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 31 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; abdominal ventral denticle belt; thoracic segment; cuticle; gland; organ system subdivision; portion of tissue; larval abdominal segment; larval thorax; sensillum; heart primordium; abdominal 5 ventral denticle belt; dorsal thoracic disc; parasegment 14; parasegment 2; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; spiracle; adult segment.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Nuclear hormone receptor, ligand-binding; Nuclear hormone receptor, ligand-binding, core; Steroid hormone receptor; Zinc finger, NHR/GATA-type; Zinc finger, nuclear hormone receptor-type.
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 12-24 hour embryonic stages.
