|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: RNA binding; mRNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: bristle development; stem cell maintenance; cellular response to hypoxia; germ-line stem cell division; negative regulation of translation.
24 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: rhabdomere; trichogen cell; testis sheath muscle; thecogen cell; testis; tormogen cell; ommatidium; socket; external sensory organ.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Nucleotide-binding, alpha-beta plait; RNA recognition motif domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages.
