Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: S-nitrosoglutathione reductase activity; S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione dehydrogenase activity; alcohol dehydrogenase (NAD) activity; octanol dehydrogenase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of peptidyl-cysteine S-nitrosylation; visual learning.
16 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Alcohol dehydrogenase GroES-like; Alcohol dehydrogenase class III/S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione dehydrogenase; Alcohol dehydrogenase superfamily, zinc-type; Alcohol dehydrogenase, C-terminal; Alcohol dehydrogenase, zinc-type, conserved site; GroES-like; NAD(P)-binding domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, during early pupal stages, in adult female stages.
