Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: central nervous system development; germ-line stem cell maintenance; regulation of compound eye pigmentation; olfactory behavior; asymmetric neuroblast division; maintenance of imaginal histoblast diploidy; open tracheal system development; cell fate specification.
115 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 32 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; embryonic/larval dorsal branch; adult segment; external compound sense organ; embryonic/larval tracheal system; sensillum; somatic cell; imaginal precursor; hub cell; embryonic/larval dorsal branch 2; embryonic/larval dorsal branch 5; eo support cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like; Zinc finger, C2H2-type/integrase, DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages.
