Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: DNA binding; sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sensory organ boundary specification; compound eye photoreceptor cell differentiation; leg disc proximal/distal pattern formation; lateral inhibition; eye-antennal disc morphogenesis; eye pigment granule organization; bristle morphogenesis.
9 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 13 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; thoracic segment; organ system; adult mesothoracic segment; appendage segment; sensillum; nervous system; epithelial furrow; external compound sense organ.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
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 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
