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: sensory organ boundary specification; sensory organ development.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 27 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; external compound sense organ; peripheral nervous system; antennal segment; adult mesothoracic segment; nervous system; imaginal precursor; abdominal dorsal bipolar neuron dbp; eo support cell; rhabdomere R7; rhabdomere; dorsal thoracic disc.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Helix-loop-helix DNA-binding; Helix-loop-helix DNA-binding domain.
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.
