|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: chitin binding; chitinase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chitin catabolic process.
3 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Chitin binding domain; Chitinase II; Glycoside hydrolase, chitinase active site; Glycoside hydrolase, family 18, catalytic domain; Glycoside hydrolase, subgroup, catalytic core; Glycoside hydrolase, superfamily.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during early larval stages, during early pupal stages.
