Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific enhancer binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: notum cell fate specification; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; imaginal disc-derived wing vein specification; imaginal disc-derived wing morphogenesis; compound eye morphogenesis.
24 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 32 unique terms, many of which group under: adult segment; organ system subdivision; organ system; thoracic segment; integumentary plate; external compound sense organ; imaginal precursor; adult cuticle; postalar bristle; wing margin bristle.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox KN domain; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
