Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: rhodopsin mediated signaling pathway; phototransduction; regulation of lipid storage; thermotaxis.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 13 unique terms, many of which group under: external compound sense organ; organ system subdivision; peripheral nervous system; nervous system; histaminergic neuron; gland; rhabdomere; cell projection; cell part; cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase; Phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase, eukaryota.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during late pupal stages.
