Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: hydrogen-exporting ATPase activity, phosphorylative mechanism.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: growth; spermatid development; phagocytosis, engulfment.
31 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: mesothoracic tergum.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: ATPase, F1 complex, alpha subunit; ATPase, F1/A1 complex, alpha subunit, N-terminal; ATPase, F1/A1 complex, alpha/beta subunit, N-terminal; ATPase, F1/V1/A1 complex, alpha/beta subunit, C-terminal; ATPase, F1/V1/A1 complex, alpha/beta subunit, N-terminal; ATPase, F1/V1/A1 complex, alpha/beta subunit, nucleotide-binding domain; ATPase, alpha/beta subunit, nucleotide-binding domain, active site.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of very high expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
