Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: satellite DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: telomere maintenance; telomere capping; neurogenesis.
14 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: chromosome, telomeric region; trichogen cell; mesothoracic tergum; mitotic metaphase.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
