Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding; sequence-specific DNA binding; protein domain specific binding; DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence for 12 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; biological regulation; regulation of multicellular organismal development; regulation of biological process; organ development; regulation of developmental process; cell fate commitment; cell fate determination; segment specification; organ morphogenesis.
481 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 115 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; larval abdominal segment; adult mesothoracic segment; organ system; thoracic segment; hypodermal muscle of larval abdomen; primordium; A1-7 transverse muscle; sensillum.
It has 6 annotated transcripts and 6 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox protein, antennapedia type, conserved site; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
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 at stages throughout embryogenesis, during early pupal stages.
