Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: alkaline phosphatase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: epithelial fluid transport; nervous system development.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: adult Malpighian tubule.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Alkaline phosphatase; Alkaline phosphatase, active site; Alkaline phosphatase-like, alpha/beta/alpha; Alkaline-phosphatase-like, core domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during early larval stages, in adult male stages.
