Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding; translation repressor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of mRNA stability; negative regulation of translation; nuclear-transcribed mRNA poly(A) tail shortening; establishment of RNA localization.
20 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: ovary.
It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Armadillo-type fold; Smaug, pseudo-HEAT analogous topology; Sterile alpha motif domain; Sterile alpha motif homology; Sterile alpha motif, type 1; Sterile alpha motif-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
