Intestinal gene expression in different physiological conditions There is not condition-dependent expression data available for this gene.
Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: binding; extracellular matrix structural constituent.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: Malpighian tubule morphogenesis; skeletal muscle tissue development.
29 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic anterior Malpighian tubule; A1-7 segment border muscle.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: C-type lectin fold; Collagen IV, non-collagenous; Collagen triple helix repeat.
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 within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
