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: protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: hemolymph coagulation.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: wing; tergite.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Immunoglobulin E-set; Immunoglobulin-like fold; Protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase, eukaryota; Transglutaminase, C-terminal; Transglutaminase, N-terminal; Transglutaminase-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
