Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: leucine-tRNA ligase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: leucyl-tRNA aminoacylation.
3 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: trichogen cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, class 1a, anticodon-binding; Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, class I (M); Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, class I, conserved site; Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, class Ia; Leucyl-tRNA synthetase, class Ia, bacterial/mitochondrial; Rossmann-like alpha/beta/alpha sandwich fold; Valyl/Leucyl/Isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, class I, anticodon-binding.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
