Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: phosphate transmembrane transporter activity; transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: wing disc dorsal/ventral pattern formation.
6 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: trichogen cell; metathoracic leg sensillum; antennal sense organ; prothoracic leg sensillum; mesothoracic leg sensillum.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Mitochondrial carrier domain; Mitochondrial substrate/solute carrier.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely high expression to a trough of very high expression.
Peak expression observed during early larval stages.
