Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: ATPase activity, coupled; motor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: male courtship behavior, veined wing generated song production; adult walking behavior; sensory perception of sound; auditory behavior; male courtship behavior.
8 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: adult antennal nerve; mechanosensory sensory organ; wing; arista.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: ATPase, AAA+ type, core; ATPase, AAA-5; Dynein heavy chain; Dynein heavy chain, N-terminal domain-1; Dynein heavy chain, N-terminal domain-2; Lipocalin.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of low expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages.
