Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: tyrosine 3-monooxygenase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: dopamine biosynthetic process; cuticle pigmentation; regulation of epithelial cell migration, open tracheal system; adult locomotory behavior; dopamine metabolic process; thermosensory behavior; thermotaxis; male courtship behavior.
31 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 11 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; cuticle; organ system subdivision; adult segment; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; adult mesothoracic segment; adult; integumentary system; acellular anatomical structure; cuticular specialization; thoracic segment; sensillum; adult cuticle; spiracle.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Aromatic amino acid hydroxylase; Aromatic amino acid hydroxylase, C-terminal; Aromatic amino acid hydroxylase, iron/copper binding site; Tyrosine 3-monooxygenase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the pupal period.
