Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: poly-pyrimidine tract binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: nuclear mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; mitotic spindle organization; RNA splicing; regulation of alternative nuclear mRNA splicing, via spliceosome.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: macrochaeta; sex comb; crystal cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Nucleotide-binding, alpha-beta plait; RNA recognition motif domain; U2 auxiliary factor small subunit; Zinc finger, CCCH-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
