Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: adipokinetic hormone receptor binding; neuropeptide hormone activity.
It is reported to be involved in the biological process: neuropeptide signaling pathway.
6 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: lipid droplet.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Adipokinetic hormone, conserved site; Adipokinetic hormone/red pigment-concentrating hormone.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed in adult male stages.
