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: oocyte anterior/posterior axis specification; regulation of oskar mRNA translation; mRNA polyadenylation; pole plasm oskar mRNA localization; germ cell development; oocyte dorsal/ventral axis specification.
30 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 11 unique terms, many of which group under: multicellular structure; organ system; anatomical structure; female germline cyst; egg; nuclear part; embryonic abdomen; eo support cell; organ system subdivision; chorion; synaptonemal complex; sensillum; adult segment.
It has 6 annotated transcripts and 6 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Nucleotide-binding, alpha-beta plait; RNA recognition motif domain.
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 stages of adults of both sexes.
