Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein tyrosine kinase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: terminal region determination; protein autophosphorylation; pole cell migration; metamorphosis; gastrulation; chorion-containing eggshell pattern formation.
137 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 40 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; multicellular structure; primordium; larval head segment; portion of tissue; embryonic segment; abdominal segment 7; mouthpart; epithelial furrow; cephalopharyngeal skeleton.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Fibronectin type III domain; Fibronectin, type III; Protein kinase, ATP binding site; Protein kinase, catalytic domain; Protein kinase-like domain; Serine-threonine/tyrosine-protein kinase; Tyrosine-protein kinase, active site; Tyrosine-protein kinase, catalytic domain; Tyrosine-protein kinase, receptor torso.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
