Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: isoprenoid biosynthetic process.
2 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: tormogen cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase; GHMP kinase; GHMP kinase, C-terminal; Ribosomal protein S5 domain 2-type fold; Ribosomal protein S5 domain 2-type fold, subgroup.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages, during late pupal stages.
