Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: male courtship behavior, veined wing generated song production; inter-male aggressive behavior; male courtship behavior, veined wing extension; male courtship behavior.
59 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 21 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; cytoplasmic part; adult segment; larval abdominal segment; imaginal precursor; portion of tissue; hub cell; spermatocyte; spermatozoon; female germline cyst; nervous system; primordium.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Fruit fly transformer.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages.
