Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: cyclin-dependent protein kinase 5 activator activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: motor axon guidance; determination of adult lifespan; adult locomotory behavior; axonogenesis.
9 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: eye; SNa; mesothoracic tergum.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activator; Cyclin-like.
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 06-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
