Intestinal gene expression in different physiological conditions There is not condition-dependent expression data available for this gene.
Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: DNA binding; ATP binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: female meiosis chromosome segregation; reciprocal meiotic recombination.
21 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: oocyte; cell cycle.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Mini-chromosome maintenance, DNA-dependent ATPase.
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 in adult male stages.
This gene is annotated by FlyBase as a dicistronic gene, meaning that some or all of its transcripts encode two or more polypeptide-coding open reading frames (ORFs) , with each ORF assigned to a different gene.
The distribution of RNA-Seq coverage data amongst the different encoded genes cannot be determined.
