Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: DNA binding; protein dimerization activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: apposition of dorsal and ventral imaginal disc-derived wing surfaces; terminal branching, open tracheal system; imaginal disc-derived wing morphogenesis; sleep; open tracheal system development.
60 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 13 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; organ system subdivision; organ system; adult mesothoracic segment; tracheal system; thoracic segment; appendage segment; embryonic/larval tracheal system; sensillum; non-connected developing system; cephalopharyngeal skeleton.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Armadillo-like helical; Transcription factor, MADS-box.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult female stages.
