Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: iron-responsive element binding; aconitate hydratase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: regulation of translational initiation by iron.
3 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Aconitase A/isopropylmalate dehydratase small subunit, swivel; Aconitase family, 4Fe-4S cluster binding site; Aconitase/3-isopropylmalate dehydratase large subunit, alpha/beta/alpha; Aconitase/3-isopropylmalate dehydratase large subunit, alpha/beta/alpha, subdomain 1/3; Aconitase/3-isopropylmalate dehydratase large subunit, alpha/beta/alpha, subdomain 2; Aconitase/3-isopropylmalate dehydratase, swivel; Aconitase/Iron regulatory protein 2/2-methylisocitrate dehydratase; Aconitase/iron regulatory protein 2; Aconitase/isopropylmalate dehydratase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, during early pupal stages.
