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: regulation of cell shape; R7 cell development; bristle development; compound eye photoreceptor development; periodic partitioning by pair rule gene; compound eye corneal lens development; cell adhesion; compound eye morphogenesis.
50 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 17 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; abdominal ventral denticle belt; cuticle; larval abdominal segment; external compound sense organ; organ system subdivision; thoracic segment; peripheral nervous system; metathoracic ventral denticle belt; embryonic head; presumptive embryonic/larval nervous system; abdominal 5 ventral denticle belt.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Carboxypeptidase-like, regulatory domain; EGF, extracellular; EGF-like region, conserved site; Epidermal growth factor-like; Epidermal growth factor-like, type 3; Six-bladed beta-propeller, TolB-like; YD repeat.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-18 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages.
