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 for 13 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: rhythmic process; biological regulation; circadian rhythm; mating; entrainment of circadian clock; response to chemical stimulus; aging; multicellular organismal process; regulation of biological process; multi-organism process; response to stress.
215 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: trichogen cell; indirect flight muscle motor neuron MN5; Malpighian tubule; mesothoracic tergum; posterior adult hindgut.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: PAC motif; PAS; PAS fold.
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 during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
