Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: alanine-glyoxylate transaminase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: glyoxylate catabolic process.
2 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Aminotransferase class-V pyridoxal-phosphate binding site; Aminotransferase, class V/Cysteine desulfurase; Pyridoxal phosphate-dependent transferase, major domain; Pyridoxal phosphate-dependent transferase, major region, subdomain 1; Pyridoxal phosphate-dependent transferase, major region, subdomain 2; Serine-pyruvate aminotransferase/2-aminoethylphosphonate-pyruvate transaminase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed during early pupal stages.
