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: zinc ion binding; nucleic acid binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: negative regulation of axon extension; axon guidance; sensory organ development; dendrite morphogenesis; terminal cell fate specification, open tracheal system; branching involved in open tracheal system development; axonogenesis.
20 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: embryonic/larval ganglionic branch.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like; Zinc finger, C2H2-type/integrase, DNA-binding.
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 06-12 hour embryonic stages.
