Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: ATP-dependent helicase activity; helicase activity.
It is reported to be involved in the biological process: nervous system development; apoptosis; nuclear mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; anatomical structure morphogenesis; establishment of cell polarity.
25 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: retina; central nervous system; Bolwig nerve; photoreceptor cell; longitudinal connective; ommatidium.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: DEAD-like helicase; DNA/RNA helicase, DEAD/DEAH box type, N-terminal; Helicase, C-terminal; RNA helicase, DEAD-box type, Q motif; Zinc finger, CCHC retroviral-type; Zinc finger, CCHC-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages.
