Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: GTPase activity; GTP binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: olfactory learning; learning or memory; eye pigment granule organization; ommochrome biosynthetic process.
21 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: primary pigment cell pigment granule; Malpighian tubule; secondary pigment cell pigment granule; ocellus pigment granule; tertiary pigment cell pigment granule; pigment cell.
It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Small GTP-binding protein domain; Small GTPase superfamily; Small GTPase superfamily, Rab type.
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, during late pupal stages.
