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: axon guidance; compound eye photoreceptor development; compound eye development; neuron differentiation; mushroom body development; photoreceptor cell fate specification; antennal joint development; genital disc sexually dimorphic development.
65 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 52 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; external compound sense organ; synaptic neuropil subdomain; peripheral nervous system; multi-cell-component structure; antennal segment; appendage segment; adult mesothoracic segment; imaginal precursor.
It has 7 annotated transcripts and 7 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Bifunctional trypsin/alpha-amylase inhibitor; DNA binding domain, putative; Transforming protein Ski.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-24 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
