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.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent.
73 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 19 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; cuticle; abdominal ventral denticle belt; embryonic/larval neuron; larval abdominal segment; thoracic segment; peripheral nervous system; metathoracic ventral denticle belt; gland; nervous system; adult; heart primordium; embryonic segment; epithelial furrow; external compound sense organ; syncytial blastoderm embryo; antennal segment.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related; Paired box protein, N-terminal; Winged helix-turn-helix transcription repressor DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult male stages.
