Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: alpha(1,6)-fucosyltransferase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: protein glycosylation.
3 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Alpha-(1,6)-fucosyltransferase, eukaryotic type; Src homology-3 domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
