Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: microtubule motor activity; microtubule binding.
There is experimental evidence for 14 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: cellular component organization or biogenesis; anatomical structure development; localization; microtubule-based movement; cellular process involved in reproduction; transport; cellular localization; multicellular organismal reproductive process; cell projection organization; biological regulation.
69 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 11 unique terms, many of which group under: cell part; organ system; cell projection; organelle; neuron projection; nervous system; eo support cell; organ system subdivision; protein complex; synapse; cytoplasmic part; axon; female germline cyst.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Kinesin, motor domain; Kinesin, motor region, conserved site.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult female stages.
