Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: translation termination factor activity; GTP binding; translation release factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: translational termination.
20 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: onion stage spermatid; Nebenkern; aster.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Ataxin-2, C-terminal; Protein synthesis factor, GTP-binding; Translation elongation factor EF1A/initiation factor IF2gamma, C-terminal; Translation elongation factor EFTu/EF1A, C-terminal; Translation elongation factor EFTu/EF1A, domain 2; Translation elongation/initiation factor/Ribosomal, beta-barrel.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
