Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: structural constituent of ribosome.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to hypoxia; response to mechanical stimulus; sensory perception of sound; male courtship behavior; mechanosensory behavior.
19 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: egg; macrochaeta.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Nucleic acid-binding, OB-fold; Nucleic acid-binding, OB-fold-like; Ribosomal protein S12, bacteria; Ribosomal protein S12/S23.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in adult female stages.
