Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding; DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: pheromone metabolic process; cuticle pigmentation; non-sensory hair organization; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; cuticle pattern formation; germ-line sex determination; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; adult feeding behavior; epidermal cell differentiation.
193 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 29 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; female germline cyst; adult segment; external compound sense organ; cuticle; egg; antennal segment; cell part; germarium; cytoplasmic part; rhabdomere; wing hair.
It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like; Zinc finger, C2H2-type/integrase, DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
