Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: mitotic cell cycle G2/M transition DNA damage checkpoint; positive regulation of NFAT protein import into nucleus; response to UV.
18 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: photoreceptor cell R7; mesothoracic tergum; tormogen cell; tergite.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Armadillo; Armadillo-like helical; Armadillo-type fold; Importin-alpha-like, importin-beta-binding domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of high expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 and 18-24 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages.
