Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: neurogenesis.
14 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 12 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; external compound sense organ; spermatocyte; egg; cell part; cell; peripheral nervous system; rhabdomere; adult segment.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Armadillo-like helical; Domain of unknown function DUF1546; Histone-fold; TATA box binding protein associated factor (TAF).
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 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
