Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: glutamate receptor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: synaptic transmission; regulation of neurotransmitter secretion; regulation of synaptic activity.
22 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: t-bar; bouton; neuromuscular junction; embryonic/larval neuromuscular junction; type I bouton; synapse; synaptic vesicle.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Extracellular ligand-binding receptor; Glutamate receptor, L-glutamate/glycine-binding; Ionotropic glutamate receptor; NMDA receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
