Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: female gonad development; eye-antennal disc morphogenesis; transcription, DNA-dependent; sex differentiation; imaginal disc-derived leg morphogenesis.
33 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 22 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; organ system subdivision; appendage segment; antennal segment; adult mesothoracic segment; germarium; vitellarium; metathoracic tarsal segment; prothoracic leg; metatarsus.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: BTB/POZ; BTB/POZ fold; BTB/POZ-like; Helix-turn-helix, Psq; Helix-turn-helix, Psq-like; Homeodomain-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of low expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the pupal period.
