Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: protoheme IX farnesyltransferase activity.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: respiratory chain complex IV assembly; heme biosynthetic process.
4 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: trichogen cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Protohaem IX farnesyltransferase; Protohaem IX farnesyltransferase, mitochondria; UbiA prenyltransferase family.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
