Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: receptor binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: circadian rhythm; regulation of circadian sleep/wake cycle; locomotor rhythm; circadian sleep/wake cycle; gravitaxis; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod.
6 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: LNd neuron; LNv neuron; mesothoracic tergum.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Pigment-dispersing hormone.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, in adult male stages.
