Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding; sequence-specific enhancer binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; mesoderm development.
23 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: midgut muscle.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
