Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: mRNA 3'-UTR binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: RNA localization; positive regulation of cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly; pole plasm protein localization; regulation of pole plasm oskar mRNA localization; long-term memory; pole plasm assembly; anterior/posterior axis specification, embryo; pole plasm RNA localization.
35 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 16 unique terms, many of which group under: embryonic abdomen; multicellular structure; embryonic segment; embryonic tagma; embryonic head; abdominal segment 7; blastoderm embryo; cell part; embryonic abdominal segment 4; anatomical structure.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Double-stranded RNA-binding; Double-stranded RNA-binding-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
