Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: retinal binding.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: transport.
3 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Cellular retinaldehyde binding/alpha-tocopherol transport; Cellular retinaldehyde-binding/triple function, C-terminal; Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein-like, N-terminal.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period.
