Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter; cellular process.
14 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mesothoracic tergum; third instar larva.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Bromodomain transcription factor; Histone-fold; Transcription factor TFIID, subunit 8, C-terminal.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages.
