Intestinal gene expression in different physiological conditions There is not condition-dependent expression data available for this gene.
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: decapentaplegic receptor signaling pathway; smoothened signaling pathway; chondroitin sulfate biosynthetic process; glycosaminoglycan biosynthetic process; heparan sulfate proteoglycan biosynthetic process, polysaccharide chain biosynthetic process; Wnt receptor signaling pathway; heparin biosynthetic process; heparan sulfate proteoglycan biosynthetic process.
16 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: EXTL2, alpha-1,4-N-acetylhexosaminyltransferase; Exostosin-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
This gene is annotated by FlyBase as a dicistronic gene, meaning that some or all of its transcripts encode two or more polypeptide-coding open reading frames (ORFs) , with each ORF assigned to a different gene.
The distribution of RNA-Seq coverage data amongst the different encoded genes cannot be determined.
