Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: alkane 1-monooxygenase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to caffeine; insecticide metabolic process; lauric acid metabolic process.
5 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Cytochrome P450; Cytochrome P450, E-class, group I; Cytochrome P450, E-class, group II; Cytochrome P450, conserved site.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
