|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; RNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: posttranscriptional gene silencing; male germ-line stem cell division; negative regulation of transposition, DNA-mediated; pole cell formation; stem cell division; female germ-line stem cell division; chromatin silencing.
27 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: ovariole; egg; ovary; male germline stem cell; spectrosome; testis; nurse cell spectrosome; female germline stem cell; egg chamber; germarium.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Argonaute/Dicer protein, PAZ; Ribonuclease H-like; Stem cell self-renewal protein Piwi.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
