Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: actin binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: wing disc development; regulation of lamellipodium assembly; border follicle cell migration; actin cytoskeleton organization; regulation of actin filament length; barbed-end actin filament capping; cytoplasmic transport, nurse cell to oocyte; actin filament organization; negative regulation of filopodium assembly.
15 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: sternopleural bristle; macrochaeta; border follicle cell; nurse cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: F-actin capping protein, beta subunit, conserved site; WASH complex, F-actin capping protein, beta subunit.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, during early pupal stages, in adult female stages.
