Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: acetate-CoA ligase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: behavioral response to ethanol.
12 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: AMP-binding, conserved site; AMP-dependent synthetase/ligase; Acetate-CoA ligase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, in adult male stages.
