Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: cytoskeletal protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: adult somatic muscle development; embryonic morphogenesis; maintenance of imaginal disc-derived wing hair orientation; regulation of tube size, open tracheal system; establishment of glial blood-brain barrier.
44 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 19 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; external compound sense organ; organ system; non-connected developing system; integumentary plate; plasma membrane part; adult segment; compound cell cluster organ; sensillum; plasma membrane.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Band 4.
1 domain; Band 4.
1 family; Band 4.
1, C-terminal; FERM adjacent (FA); FERM central domain; FERM conserved site; FERM domain; FERM, C-terminal PH-like domain; FERM, N-terminal; FERM/acyl-CoA-binding protein, 3-helical bundle; Pleckstrin homology-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages.
