Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: cell adhesion.
15 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: central nervous system.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Complement control module; Immunoglobulin subtype; Immunoglobulin-like; Immunoglobulin-like fold; Sushi/SCR/CCP.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages.
