Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sensory organ development; Notch signaling pathway; cell fate specification.
13 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 14 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; sensillum; adult segment; eo support cell; adult mesothoracic segment; sense organ; nervous system; peripheral nervous system; integumentary plate; somatic cell; tormogen cell; organ system.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
