Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: muscle cell fate determination.
6 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 28 unique terms, many of which group under: hypodermal muscle of larval abdomen; organ system; A1-7 transverse muscle; adult abdominal myoblast; larval abdominal segment 5; A1-7 oblique muscle; adult; larval abdominal segment; non-connected developing system; A1-7 ventral acute muscle 2; adult segment.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-24 hour embryonic stages.
