Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: 5S rRNA primary transcript binding.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: RNA processing.
4 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: midgut constriction 2; trichogen cell; midgut constriction; midgut constriction 1; midgut constriction 3.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Lupus La protein; Nucleotide-binding, alpha-beta plait; RNA recognition motif domain; RNA-binding motif; RNA-binding protein Lupus La; Winged helix-turn-helix transcription repressor DNA-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-12 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, in adult female stages.
