Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: galactose binding; Gram-negative bacterial cell surface binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: induction of bacterial agglutination.
3 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: C-type lectin; C-type lectin fold; C-type lectin-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
