|Flybase description||The gene Niemann-Pick type C-2a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Npc2a (CG7291, FBgn0031381).|
|Expression data along the gut||
|Intestinal gene expression in different physiological conditions||There is not condition-dependent expression data available for this gene.|
|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: sterol binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sterol homeostasis; sterol transport; ecdysteroid biosynthetic process.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: Malpighian tubule.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Immunoglobulin E-set; MD-2-related lipid-recognition.
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, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult female stages.
