Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: translation repressor activity, nucleic acid binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: germ-line stem cell maintenance; oogenesis.
15 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: stem cell fusome; cystocyte; male germline stem cell; germline stem cell; fusome; germline cell; testis; gonad; female germline stem cell; germarium.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Ankyrin repeat; Ankyrin repeat-containing domain; Domain of unknown function DUF1605; Helicase-associated domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
