Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: beta-1,4-mannosyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence for 16 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; multicellular organismal reproductive process; cellular process involved in reproduction; cellular component organization or biogenesis; biological regulation; localization; morphogenesis of follicular epithelium; mating; cell fate commitment; establishment or maintenance of polarity of follicular epithelium.
60 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 28 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; adult segment; female germline cyst; multi-cell-component structure; nervous system; egg; synaptic neuropil subdomain; sensillum; lobula complex; external compound sense organ.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
