Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: nicotinic acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to insecticide.
29 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: ventral nerve cord.
It has 6 annotated transcripts and 6 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand-binding; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel transmembrane domain; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel, conserved site; Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
