Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: calcium ion binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: trachea development; Malpighian tubule morphogenesis; extracellular matrix constituent secretion; mesoderm development; ventral cord development.
22 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/first instar larval cuticle; presumptive embryonic/larval tracheal system.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: EF-Hand 1, calcium-binding site; EF-hand-like domain; Follistatin-like, N-terminal; Osteonectin-like, conserved site; SPARC/Testican, calcium-binding domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
