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: DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: female meiosis; telomere capping; neurogenesis.
3 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: trichogen cell; polar body nucleus; embryonic/larval salivary gland; mesothoracic tergum; polytene chromosome, telomeric region.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Chromo domain-like; Chromo domain/shadow; Chromo shadow; Chromo shadow, subgroup.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
