Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: nutrient reservoir activity.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: transport.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: tergite.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Arthropod hemocyanin/insect LSP; Hemocyanin, C-terminal; Hemocyanin, N-terminal; Hemocyanin, copper-type; Immunoglobulin E-set; Uncharacterised domain, di-copper centre.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
