Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: translation initiation factor activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: neurogenesis.
5 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 7 annotated transcripts and 7 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Armadillo-type fold; MIF4-like, type 1/2/3; Translation initiation factor IF2/IF5; Translation initiation factor IF2/IF5, N-terminal; eIF4-gamma/eIF5/eIF2-epsilon.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 and 12-18 hour embryonic stages.
