Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence for 11 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: anatomical structure development; organ development; biological regulation; multicellular organismal process; organ morphogenesis; regulation of biological process; post-embryonic organ morphogenesis; post-embryonic appendage morphogenesis; regulation of cellular process; somatic muscle development; regionalization; sensory organ development.
427 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 55 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; organ system subdivision; adult mesothoracic segment; external compound sense organ; antennal segment; hypodermal muscle of larval abdomen; dorsal thoracic disc; indirect flight muscle; adult somatic muscle; appendage segment.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: TDU repeat; Vestigial/tondu.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the pupal period.
