Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: myosin phosphatase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: dorsal closure; regulation of compound eye photoreceptor development; axon extension involved in development; oogenesis; epidermis development; germline ring canal formation; imaginal disc-derived wing hair organization.
41 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: germline cyst; ring canal; embryonic/first instar larval cuticle; eye; adult abdomen; dorsal hair; wing; embryonic/larval epidermis; embryonic leading edge cell.
It has 12 annotated transcripts and 12 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Ankyrin repeat; Ankyrin repeat-containing domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
