Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: voltage-gated potassium channel activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sleep.
12 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: adult cuticle; wing.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: BTB/POZ fold; BTB/POZ-like; Ion transport; Potassium channel, voltage dependent, Kv; Potassium channel, voltage dependent, Kv, tetramerisation; Potassium channel, voltage dependent, Kv3; Voltage-dependent potassium channel; Voltage-dependent potassium channel Kv3, invertebrate.
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 within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
