Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: imaginal disc-derived wing margin morphogenesis; imaginal disc-derived wing vein morphogenesis; imaginal disc-derived wing vein specification; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; imaginal disc-derived leg morphogenesis; neurogenesis.
28 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: midgut constriction 2; ventral nerve cord commissure; eye; embryonic head; macrochaeta; presumptive embryonic/larval peripheral nervous system; midgut constriction 1; wing.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: BRCT; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related; Myb, DNA-binding; SANT domain, DNA binding; SANT, eukarya; SWIRM; Winged helix-turn-helix transcription repressor DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
