Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: xanthine dehydrogenase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: pyrimidine base metabolic process; determination of adult lifespan; arginine metabolic process; tryptophan metabolic process; glycerophospholipid metabolic process; purine base metabolic process.
355 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: Malpighian tubule; pigment cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: 2Fe-2S ferredoxin, iron-sulphur binding site; Aldehyde oxidase/xanthine dehydrogenase; Aldehyde oxidase/xanthine dehydrogenase, a/b hammerhead; Aldehyde oxidase/xanthine dehydrogenase, molybdopterin binding; Beta-grasp fold, ferredoxin-type; CO dehydrogenase flavoprotein, C-terminal; CO dehydrogenase flavoprotein-like, FAD-binding, subdomain 2; FAD-binding, type 2; FAD-binding, type 2, subdomain 1; Ferredoxin; Molybdopterin dehydrogenase, FAD-binding; Oxidoreductase, molybdopterin binding site; Xanthine dehydrogenase, small subunit; [2Fe-2S]-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 and 12-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
