Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: sterol binding; phospholipid transporter activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: phospholipid transport.
4 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: SCP2 sterol-binding domain; Thiolase; Thiolase, C-terminal; Thiolase, N-terminal; Thiolase, acyl-enzyme intermediate active site; Thiolase, conserved site; Thiolase-like; Thiolase-like, subgroup.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
