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: central nervous system development; axon guidance; axonal fasciculation; axonogenesis.
38 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: commissure; ventral nerve cord; presumptive embryonic/larval central nervous system; ocellar nerve.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Carboxylesterase type B, conserved site; Carboxylesterase, type B.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages.
