Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: nicotinic acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: ion transport.
6 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand-binding; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel transmembrane domain; Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-12 hour embryonic stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages.
