Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: extracellular matrix structural constituent.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: cell morphogenesis; rhabdomere development; temperature compensation of the circadian clock.
36 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: ocellus retinula cell; rhabdomere; photoreceptor cell; ocellus rhabdomere; eye photoreceptor cell stalk; ommatidium.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Concanavalin A-like lectin/glucanase; Concanavalin A-like lectin/glucanase, subgroup; EGF; EGF-like calcium-binding; EGF-like calcium-binding, conserved site; EGF-like region, conserved site; EGF-type aspartate/asparagine hydroxylation site; Epidermal growth factor-like; Epidermal growth factor-like, type 3; Laminin G domain; Laminin G, subdomain 2.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during late pupal stages.
