Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: mRNA guanylyltransferase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: mRNA capping.
5 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Dual specificity phosphatase, catalytic domain; Nucleic acid-binding, OB-fold; Nucleic acid-binding, OB-fold-like; Protein-tyrosine phosphatase, active site; Protein-tyrosine/Dual-specificity phosphatase; mRNA capping enzyme; mRNA capping enzyme, C-terminal; mRNA capping enzyme, bifunctional.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages.
CAVEAT: These RNA-Seq temporal profiles depend upon RNA-Seq reads that are uniquely placed in the genome.
For this reason, genes such as histones, Stellates and many classes of RNA genes that are present in multiple exact or near exact copies in the genome, expression levels may be reported as much lower than their true values.
