Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of tube size, open tracheal system; establishment of glial blood-brain barrier; open tracheal system development; septate junction assembly.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 15 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; abdominal ventral denticle belt; embryonic/larval tracheal system; larval abdominal segment; portion of tissue; tracheal system; late extended germ band embryo; cuticle; primordium; dorsal trunk primordium; abdominal 5 ventral denticle belt.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Beta tubulin, autoregulation binding site.
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 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
