Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: bHLH transcription factor binding; sequence-specific DNA binding; sequence-specific enhancer binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence for 11 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; sensory organ development; cellular component organization or biogenesis; organ morphogenesis; organ development; neuron differentiation; multicellular organismal process; biological regulation; compound eye photoreceptor development; regulation of apoptosis; compound eye development; cell projection organization.
43 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 21 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; external compound sense organ; adult mesothoracic segment; peripheral nervous system; nervous system; eo support cell; presumptive embryonic/larval nervous system; gland; late extended germ band embryo.
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; Zinc finger, CCHC-type.
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 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
