Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: central nervous system development; gonad morphogenesis; zinc ion transport; cell migration; gonadal mesoderm development; germ cell migration; branch fusion, open tracheal system; neurogenesis.
36 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 21 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; non-connected developing system; late extended germ band embryo; multicellular structure; peripheral nervous system; extended germ band embryo; integumentary plate; imaginal precursor; external compound sense organ.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Zinc/iron permease.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
