Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sodium channel regulator activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: male courtship behavior, veined wing generated song production; cellular response to heat; positive regulation of sodium ion transport via voltage-gated sodium channel activity.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: trichogen cell.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
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 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages.
